As many of you may already know The National Confernce for Community & Justice (NCCJ) has decided to close its San Diego regional office. I wanted to take this opportunity, as we prepare to enter a new year, to thank all of you for your incredible support over the last few years. I am deeply saaddened that the organization will be leaving but I am overjoyed to think of all the young people we affected over the last few years. I am optomistic that NCCJ's work will continue in San Diego. I trust that our alumni will conitune to work towards the organizational mission of fightin bias, bigotry, and racism and will make this city, country and the world a better place for all of us not just some of us.
If you would liek a PDF version of IMPACTs last newsletter e-mail me and I will send you a copyt. I feel that this piece is really reflective of the true impact that NCCJ had over this region. IMPACT, our youth coalition will be continuing its work idependently of NCCJ and I am sure they will need all of your support in the near future. As for myself I am entering the year looking to begin a new chapter in my life. Not sure where I will end up, but I am working very hard to ensure I end up somewhere that allows me to keep working towards a better San Diego. Additionally please support this years MLK all People's Breakfast. As a result of NCCJ leaving San Diego this annual tradition almost faded away without anyone knowing. Fortunatly for our community several passionate and caring individuals stepped up and made this event a reality once again. This year the prices will be lower than ever before and a great program will be delivered.
Once again I thank you for all youi support over the year both organizationally and personally. I have included my personal contact information below and will forward my new business information as soon as it becomes available.Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
Gracias & Si Se Puede
