For the August Virtual Power Breakfast, to be held on Saturday, August 8, 2020, COAL is honored to host one of its very own, retired Illinois Senate President Emil Jones Jr. to converse with us on the topic: Increasing the political strength and effectiveness of our elected / appointed black officials: what they can/should be doing and what we, the community, should/must do to assist and encourage them, as we demand accountability and change.

This is a topic that requires that we hear from our elder statesmen and must be a topic they take on as a responsibility towards passing knowledge on to the next generation.

This is someone we all can learn from.

What We Believe
The Coalition of African American Leaders believes that it is important to examine the critical issues confronting the African American community where injustice, inequality and the absence of access and opportunity continue to prevail, thereby negatively impacting us as a people. COAL is an assemblage that advocates and organizes for appropriate and responsible public policy change, system behavior change and equality of opportunity. We aim to achieve for all of our people the fullness of the life experience without any form of racism or exclusion as a deterrent. We believe we must prepare ourselves for the opportunity of this full participation, thereby achieving the necessary education and training to participate.
