Black Voice News Selected as Business of the Year

Members of the California Legislative Black Caucus will tackle issues facing African Americans at a policy conference September 30 to Ocober 1 at the Los Angeles Airport Westin Hotel, 5400 W. Century Blvd, Los Angeles. The conference theme is, “The Challenges of Achieving America’s Dream in California.”

Federal and local elected officials and business leaders will attend the event.

African Americans have been disproportionately impacted by the recession in the areas of employment, health, education and criminal justice. Panels of experts will address these issues at the conference.

“Members of the Legislative Black Caucus must focus on the areas where our community is hurting and create policy that will empower our community and alleviate suffering,” said Senator Curren D. Price, Jr. Chair of the Caucus.

On September 30 from 6-9 p.m. , the Caucus will recognize business leaders from the Members’ assembly districts. Assembly Member Carter has selected Black Voice News as the 62nd District Business of the Year.

“I selected the Black Voice News because of the advocacy role it plays in our community. They are thorough in reporting on issues important to their readers and are very involved in the community.”

After the execution of Troy Davis, I hope black leaders will start a discussion pertaining to changing laws in the justice system. Injustice toward blacks in the prison system, is a an all time high and no one seem to be doing anything about it.

I would hope that this issue becomes a priority for all black leaders and human rights organizations. Who will be the next Troy Davis? Will you wait for the next execution before taking a stand. The prison system is old and in need of major change.
