Speaker Melvin Willis, a member of the CCRJC, a Richmond City Council member and a Community Organizer with ACCE (Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment) will share how the CCRJC has been instrumental in getting the County Board of Supervisors to investigate and eliminate disparities in the criminal and juvenile justice systems. And there is much more work to do! Come learn what SURJ members can do to support the CC Racial Justice Coalition.
We will also continue work in our three new committees: Action, Education and Communication. Get your Eventbrite ticket by 8pm on Friday, August 28 to receive the Zoom link.
