Recognizing the results of the November 3rd Presidential Election, its winners and losers at all levels, and the hopeful impacts on all areas of life for our community, for the December 2020 Power Breakfast, COAL turns its focus on an analysis of the election and the potential impacts on the issues of importance to black people. And importantly, how do we move forward from here to ensure benefits accrue to our communities, at all levels.
COAL is honored to host Delmarie Cobb, Political thought-leader, Cliff Kelley, Radio Personality, and (ret.) Senator Roland Burris to provide their perspectives on the election, the political environment and how we leverage policy and legislation to address the intransigent issues plaguing our communities. What steps must be taken to hold the incoming administration, as well as the local and state administrations accountable.

COAL Board of Directors

"The time to work seriously and collectively, to improve the state of our Community, is upon us..."
Let's Get to Work
“If there is no struggle there is no progress. …
Power concedes nothing without a demand.
It never did and it never will.”
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.
