BLOC Has Officially Launched!!
Exciting news everyone!
I’m so excited to share with you that Black Leaders Organizing for Communities has officially launched. BLOC is a new organization based in Milwaukee that will work to ensure a high quality of life and access for the Black community. We are so excited to build real, tangible, and transformative power on the north side of Milwaukee. The organizers have gone through 2 and a half days of intense training, and team building exercises and have started to hit doors this afternoon. I have no doubt in my mind that we are able to transform Milwaukee through intentional conversations and asking folks to dream big. Far too often, Black voices have been silenced and not been asked “What does it look like for our community to thrive?” We have often been locked out of decision making. Well that changes today. BLOC is here to listen, and to develop relationships in ways where people see themselves as part of the solution.
Please spread the word! Support us, join our movement. Check out our website at www.blocbybloc.org/ and follow us on twitter @blocbyblocMKE
With your support we can transform this city, neighborhood by neighborhood, and block by block.
