NAACP is Celebrating Black History Month with CSUMB

Thursday, February 27, 2020
CSUMB Alumni & Visitors Center
5108 Fourth Avenue
Marina, CA 93933

Directions:

  • Take Highway 1 to Lightfighter Drive
  • Turn left on General Jim Moore
  • Turn right on Intergarrison Road
  • Make another immediate right turn onto 4th Ave
  • The Alumni Visitor’s Center is on your right.
  • Pull into the parking lot on your right

FYI: Parking Information:

  • Regular members & guests attending the 7 PM Black History Program, without a CSUMB pass will need to purchase a ticket on site for $5.00 or can purchase in advance online at https://pmb.csustan.edu/dailypermits/#/
  • Persons with CSUMB parking passes may park in the Alumni & Visitors Center (AVC) parking lot as well but will need an additional (although FREE) pass from the AVC to avoid being ticketed, I will reserve 20 tickets and they will be available for pick-up upon arrival. 

Updated Parking Information 2/21/20

All community guests should attempt to park in the Alumni Visitor Center parking lot.  You will need a parking registration…to put in your vehicle, but it will be free of charge and keep you from being ticketed and given to you when you arrive.  We will have a Parking Officer in place by 5:30 for Executive Committee members coming to the 6 pm meeting.  The officer will stay until a little after 7 for other community guests.  There are exactly 50 spots in the parking lot.  So  those first 50 cars we can guarantee will bear no costs. 

To maximize free parking for attendees my suggestion is two-fold, 1) encourage carpooling, 2) regular members who are NOT attending the EC meeting should arrive no later than 6:30 pm.  My feeling is there may be 75 to 100 in attendance.

All are Welcome

400 Years of Inequity

The 1619 Project

Four hundred years ago, in August 1619, a ship carrying more than 20 enslaved Africans arrived in the British colony of Virginia. No aspect of the country that would be formed here has been untouched by the 250 years of slavery that followed.

“1619,” a New York Times audio series hosted by Nikole Hannah-Jones, examines the long shadow of that fateful moment. Today, instead of our usual show, we present Episode 1: “The Fight for a True Democracy.”

This episode includes scenes of graphic violence.

2020 Census Campaign

OUR VOTE IS OUR POWER, USE IT!

Per California/Hawaii NAACP President Alice A. Huffman, PhD, “We must face the local agenda in California. One of the issues we cannot drop the ball on is redistricting. We must get everyone counted to ensure the census count is real, and redistricting is based on actual numbers. We also have Congressional and State races we must tend to, for the November elections are very important.

INCREASING OPPORTUNITIES THROUGH CENSUS 2020

With the 2020 Census less than a year away, many concerned government officials, elected leaders, researchers, foundations and community organizations are preparing for the decennial 2020 Census. Communities of color have historically been undercounted in the United States of America. The Three-Fifths Compromise of the Constitutional Convention in 1787 counted enslaved Black people as three-fifths of a person in apportioning congressional districts for the U.S. House of Representatives. Since then, the Census has severely undercounted the Black population, to great disadvantage in representation, resources and power.

 HOW CAN YOU HELP?

If you are looking for temporary and/or part-time work, the Census Bureau is recruiting and hiring thousands of temporary workers for the 2020 Census.
