Black World Forum – Feb.4th, NYC


Institute of the Black World 21st Century

——————————————————————————————————————–

At the national level Dr. Ron Daniels, President of the Institute of the Black World 21st

Century(IBW), said “IBW will respond to the ‘Black State of Emergency’ we have painfully observed in New Orleans by taking up the challenge to get City Councils across the country to pass resolutions in support of the struggle for equity, fairness and justice in the rebuilding and redevelopment process. We plan to invite Cynthia Willard-Lewis, Councilwoman for the Lower Ninth Ward and New Orleans East, to participate in IBW’s regular monthly State of the Black World Forum February 4th in New York to begin the process of encouraging our allies on the New York City Council, in the spirit of the 9/11 disaster, to lead the way in mobilizing national support for the recovery effort in New Orleans.”

Daniels also indicated that plans are underway to convene national leaders to support the fight for massive assistance for the rebuilding effort. He said, “now that the Sub-Committee on Housing and Community Opportunity has been to New Orleans to assess the situation first hand, we urge them to press the Congress of the United States to provide the resources needed to rebuild and redevelop the city in accordances with the wishes of the majority population to return to reclaim and restore their neighborhoods.” The Martin Luther King Weekend Initiative enjoyed the support of the People’s Hurricane Relief Fund.
