Our very own, Tonya Cross, was a part of a panel discussion hosted by We-The-People Coalition on Tuesday, November 25th at Love Christian Center, East Spencer, NC. The event was in response to the Ferguson decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for the murder of Michael Brown. It was an assembly of community citizens, activists, and organizations. The purpose was to provide a forum to openly express feelings, concerns, and resolutions relating to Ferguson and our local African American community.
The discussion moderator was Scott Teamer, president of the Salisbury-Rowan NAACP Branch. Other panel speakers were Rev. Carrie Bolton, Rev. Anthony Smith, Kenneth Fox Muhammad, Kenny Hardin, and Alex Clark. Topics discussed included the need for collective action, economic development, community leadership, knowledge of self, and community collaboration.
Birthed from the meeting was a collective action to create a database of community organizations and local businesses. The Vine Events has accepted the task of collecting the data and we need YOUR HELP. Visit We-The-People Database to submit information about your community organizations and/or businesses to include in the database.
