The fight for racial equity in Berkeley


May 16, 2024 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
McGee Avenue Baptist Church
1640 Stuart St.

In the midst of this critical election season, the Berkeley Faith and Justice Coalition has invited a broad array of city leaders to answer pointed questions about the fight for racial equity in Berkeley.  Your presence is needed to underline to the council and school board members and candidates, as well as senior leaders of city management and the police, that Berkeley’s people:

Demand that the needs and initiatives of the most vulnerable and marginalized members of our community are the focus of all city leaders!

A leader of the Coalition, Rev. Angela Jernigan, describes it this way:

Together we represent about 3,000 families in this community.

Our chief aim is to build an equitable Berkeley for the health, safety and wellbeing of all. To that end, we represent and prioritize the voices and interests of Black and Brown members of our community in South and West Berkeley who have been historically marginalized, criminalized, underserved, and underrepresented.

Our areas of focus are the issues most grave for our population: homelessness and housing, violence prevention and interruption, police accountability, youth development and educational equity,  health equity, climate justice and workforce development.

1.  See the May 16 Event Announcement here.

3.  There will also be a Zoom option. But if you are able to, the strongest way you can show city leaders you support racial justice is to come help fill the church.

4.  Please come early so the meeting can start on time!
