Events of interest
Please see the following near term event COAL is excited to support. See you there.
I would like to invite my COAL family to the launch of my new nonprofit Meadows Eastside Community Resource Organization/MECRO on Saturday, December 7, 2019 .. MECRO along with relationships from partners like Bruce Montgomery of ESP will impact the face of entrepreneurship along the 79th street corridor and beyond.

It will warm my heart to have your attendance.
Ms. Sharon Lewis

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.
