Help to Build One America

This past year BOA has worked on a number of fronts including fighting school segregation in New Jersey, training emerging leaders in Ohio and working to build our Summit for Civil Rights coalition around the country with labor, civil rights, academic, faith and local elected leaders.  

At last November's Summit for Civil Rights at the University of Minnesota we pledged to advance the goals of racial justice and economic opportunity through a strategy of organizinglegislation and litigation. New Jersey was chosen for the next Summit for Civil Rights where all three approaches have been combined around a campaign to end school segregation. The next Summit for Civil Rights will be held on May 2-3, 2019 at Rutgers University, New Brunswick co-sponsored by the Labor Education Action Research Network. 

Also in 2019, Building One America's affiliate, Building One New Jersey, will hold five community and legislative events throughout the state modeled after the School Segregation and Equity Symposium held in Bloomfield last month with the Urban League of Essex County. Building One America and Building One Ohio will again conduct leadership trainings at Cleveland State University with the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and with the College of Urban Affairs. These trainings will include students as well as leaders experienced in labor, faith, elected office and civil rights. 

Details and schedule for the 2019 trainings and for the 2019 Summit will be provided to our members and supporters in the coming weeks.
