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
COAL Special Forums, in general, are used to provide COAL and the COAL Community-of-interest an opportunity (beyond the Monthly Coalition Power Breakfasts) to engage directly with leaders, policy makers and experts in areas of greatest impact on the quality of life for the African American community. We often augment general attendance with representatives from organizations we partner with on various initiatives, projects and actions. Collectively, this ensures a broader and more effectual discussion.
Just as importantly, special forums, as with every forum, are an additional means of gathering data, information and ideas COAL requires to develop an actionable agenda focused on addressing systemic problems and pursuing opportunities that move us beyond the dialogue towards effective change and improved outcomes.
