Come to a solution-oriented forum presented by
Berkeley Citizens Action with Berkeley NAACP.

The 2011 report from the African American/Black
Business, Professional and Community Network
(AABPCN) and the report from the 2013 Berkeley
NAACP Town Hall Meeting addressed inequities
and disparities for African Americans, low-income
populations and other marginalized groups in
Berkeley. They outlined numerous recommendations
for housing, education, employment,
criminal justice and health/mental health.

Also, CopWatch, the Peace and Justice Commission and
Police Review Commission all have solution-based
reports and/or council items that address some of
the same problems. Councilmember Jesse Arreguin
has several measures ready to present to council
and other council members are preparing items.

The purpose of our #BlackLivesMatter Forum is to
identify recommendations for action, first with
panelists, and then in breakout groups; to develop
an Action Plan which BCA and allied groups will
advocate for with politicians and political
candidates in the coming year.

Join us on February 21st, the 50th anniversary of
the assassination of El Hajj Malik El-Shabazz,
widely known by his previous chosen name
Malcolm X
