COAL has been invited to the upcoming African American Legacy (AAL) Summit entitled “Collaboration to Action: Building a Peaceful Chicago,” where this Chicago Community Trust affiliate is bringing together organizations and other leaders of Chicago to strategize about how to formalize actionable solutions to the growing violence in Chicago. We plan to accept this invitation and consequently will attend this summit, on Saturday, November 1, 2014, as opposed to holding our November Coalition Power Breakfast.
This invitation is extended to any of our breakfast attendees that are interested in also participating in this summit to identify solutions to growing violence in our communities. Please see the information below to RSVP your participation.
COAL Board of Directors
The time to work seriously and collectively, to improve the state of our Community, is upon us…
Let’s Get to Work
NOVEMBER 1, 2014 * 8 A.M. TO 2 P.M.
KENNEDY KING COLLEGE
740 W. 63RD STREET, CHICAGO
“Chiraq.” “The murder capital.” “The most violent city in America.” Every day glaring headlines further the myth that our great city is a never-ending war zone. That Chicago is a violent city with uncaring residents is a narrative we do not accept. Collaboration to Action: Building a Peaceful Chicago will provide an uplifting, inspirational and action-oriented forum and collaborative workshops to highlight good work being done. African American Legacy believes we are collectively responsible for protecting our community and ensuring it thrives. Our future, our success depends on leaders like you. The time is now to turn the conversation into action. Join us.
