Dear Friend,

Please join me on Wednesday evening for my African American town hall.

A lot has happened since Donald Trump has become presidentIn the past few months, we’ve seen exactly what the African American community has to lose. The truth of the matter is that we have decades of progress at stake.

I believe that in all of his regressive policies — on civil rights, health care, education, voting rights, environmental justice — the president is endangering our communities and cementing institutional racism.

It’s up to us to shed a light on these injustices.

I’ve invited special guest Marc Morial, President of the National Urban League, to join me for my community forum to discuss the persistence and resilience of the African American community. And I hope you will join me too.

Where: Phillip Reeder Performing Arts Center at Castlemont High School, 8601 MacArthur Blvd., Oakland, CA 94605

When: Wednesday, August 2nd, 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Speakers: Congresswoman Barbara Lee, National Urban League President Marc Morial, and members of our community

I will not let hate and discrimination prevail. I hope you and your family will participate in this critical discussion. For more information and to RSVP, please click here.

Take care,

History Spotlight

2017 November 18, 1945 - "Wilma Mankiller, First Female Chief of the Cherokee Nation, is Born" Wilma Mankiller, who served as the Chief of the Cherokee Nation for ten years from 1985 to 1995, was born in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. In 1985, Mankiller became the first female Chief of the Cherokee Nation. Before serving in this capacity, she served as the deputy chief of the Cherokee Nation for two years, getting elected to the post in 1983. Mankiller became the Chief when Ross Swimmer died in 1985, but was elected to the post in 1987 and then reelected in 1991. Under the U.S. federal policy of Native American self-determination, Mankiller improved federal-tribal negotiations.
