COMMUNITY SHOULD ATTEND THE OPENING DAY AT RAINBOW/PUSH CONVENTION SATURDAY JULY 6th

 

Special Community Organizations and Community Outreach Appeal From Veteran Activist, Mark S. Allen, Chairman of National Black Wall Street Chicago, and former National Staff Member to The Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr and The Rainbow/PUSH Coalition.

I am making this personal appeal to community organizations and the general community to attend the kick-off of the 42nd Annual Rainbow/PUSH Convention. The Opening Day activities are FREE and open to the public and taking place in the community at Rainbow/PUSH Headquarters.  Community organization leaders should attend the first national leadership panel, and our general community organization membership and community in general should fill the main auditorium for the national TV Radio Broadcast!!
