Our resolve to call attention to the issue of meeting the needs of Black & Latino Communities through creating greater access to capital remains solid. However, the recent assault on Jacob Blake in Wisconsin and the resulting protests from all corners of our community have called into question the current timing of our planned Summit. Additionally, the challenges set-forth during the DNC and RNC Conventions, further reflect the need for Black & Latino people to redouble our efforts to ensure that our communities are fully registered and mobilized to VOTE in the upcoming November 3rd Elections.
To this end, our host committee has decided to reschedule the Black & Latino Economic Summit for December 9-10, 2020 to enable us all to be fully engaged in ensuring the enfranchisement of all eligible members of Black & Latino Communities to participate in our most sacred duty as American Citizens, casting our VOTE in FREE and OPEN ELECTIONS.
