As members of the Black community, we are deeply saddened to see the countless injustices that continue to plague our people. The revolution is only now being televised and it is a call to action for everyone to step up.
Over the last few weeks we have taken the time to put our collective heads together to ensure our programs continue to inspire, educate and encourage the next generation of young Black athletes. We accept that Soldiertown is more than a basketball facility but a community hub considered a safe space for our people.
The safety and wellbeing of our athletes is always our number one priority. Our current battle as a sports facility is how to bring about change within the guidelines set by the county and state. As we are able, we will rollout programs which will allow us to maximize our community influence.
We have aligned ourselves with other community leaders who are creating positive change. New Life Community Church in Oakland, shares our passion and drive to uplift our community.
