- Bring in experts to train community members, including business owners on racial literacy and how to recognize biases and microaggressions and, more importantly, what to do about it so that it doesn't have a negative impact on your health.
- Bring together the medical community to have screenings for diabetes and hypertension and STD's and substance abuse tests done. Offer professional counseling services.
- Host seminars on sexual abuse and counseling services.
- Create a special team to talk with gangs about violence in the Black community and negotiate a plan to end it.
All of this in addition to your previous post is great but I feel there needs to be an additional binding dimension, maybe multiple, to attract the people and to sustain these activities - call it culture, or an incentive, or just a "softer" pervading dimension that will compel the people to come. Forgive me, it feels a little dry and I'm just putting this out there (you know some people will react like this): Why should/would people attend ? What's in it for me ? I can get/do all these things without it having to involve this black-a-jack business.
