Remembering John Lewis in His Own Words

“Every generation leaves behind a legacy. What that legacy will be is determined by the people of that generation. What legacy do you want to leave behind?”

Reform and Black Lives Matter: What Next?

African Americans comprise 3 percent of New Mexico’s population but are a significant voice in championing for justice in all areas of our state.

Join us for a very special event featuring African Americans from around the city for a frank discussion on racism and inequality and how that has impacted their experience. Panelists from differing backgrounds will come together to share their vision during this crucial time in our nation’s history and what we all need to do to change its course.

Harold Pope, Jr., candidate for State Senate District 23 on the West Side and West Side Dems member, will be creating this event.

July 22 6-7:30 p.m.
