We have a plan for addressing the unmet needs in the black community. These needs have given rise from systemic racism in policy as well as culture norms as a result of these policies.
While our main focus is on the lives of black Americans, it has been far too long that issues related to racism, discrimination, citizenship, sexual orientation, and genetic information have been only a conversation.
Through education, open dialogue, and resources to the community, we at BLM - Lake County will help reach black Americans reach cultural healing and address healing that comes with the shame of our country.
