THE STORY:

Since November 8, the main way I have gotten through the funk that accompanied the election results has been to read about, observe, and, more importantly, be a part of the Resistance that is going on in order to reassert our basic values of a better world. Particularly satisfying has been my work with the Bay Area Black Worker Center (an affiliate of the National Black Worker Center Project).  Since its inception in 2013, we have built a membership-based organization fighting to improve the quality of life in the Black community.  In conjunction with our partners in the Alameda County Justice Reinvestment Coalition, we won our first campaign that resulted in the Board of Supervisors approving an Alameda County Re-entry Hiring Program.  Now, we are working closely with the County to implement the program.  With the success of this program, many formerly incarcerated residents of the area will be able to qualitatively transform their lives and the lives of their families by getting good union jobs.

 

To support this work and allow us to engage in other campaigns, we are launching this fund-raising campaign.  My personal goal is to raise $2,500.  I hope you can help me reach this goal by giving as generously as you can.

 

I was fortunate to speak on a panel at the World Meeting of Popular Movements in Modesto on February 18.  To be a part of the crowd of over 600 people from all over the country was incredibly uplifting as panelists told personal stories of why they sacrifice to fight for better jobs and affordable housing.  I was reminded our fight for better policies is really a fight to remake our world.  Often participants in the Civil Rights Movement of the 60s proclaimed they were trying to build the “Beloved Community”.  I believe that is our mission today: to build a world that reflects our values of fairness, equality, dignity, and solidarity.  I get immense joy from working to build Black worker centers around the country as a way reach our Beloved Community.  Please support the Bay Area Black Worker Center and help me reach my goal of $2,500.
