WIBCA’s 1st Town Hall held June 7th 2020 identified issues in three major categories (Education, Law/Politics, Youth/Social Initiatives) and now our elected officials and law-enforcement will have the opportunity to announce their solutions.
 
We look forward to your involvement and support as we move towards justice and equality for all of us.

Our community has spoken!

WIBCA would like to take this opportunity to thank our guest panelists, poets, moderator, elected officials, law-enforcement and our community at large for the overwhelming participation at WIBCA’s 1st virtual Town Hall meeting.

Our objectives set forth were accomplished and we will continue to mobilize as we prepare for a follow up Town Hall with a date TBD.

In the interim, we will take the necessary time to review/address all the correspondences in the FB chat along with gathering any questions which (due to time constraints) may not have been addressed during the Town Hall.

We would also like to thank the generous feedback received from many of our allies and greatly appreciate all of the volunteer requests and donations received to date.
