Join us this evening as we host Mr. Ron Hasson of the NAACP

During his years of employment he held a General Management Executive position with extensive experience in strategic planning, operations and human resource management. Ron is resourceful in solving problems and maximizing resources.

Mr. Hasson currently chairs the California-Hawaii State Conference Southwest Area. Director and in 2012 he became a member of the NAACP National board of Directors. He is serving his fifth term as President of the Branch, The focus of Mr. Hasson commitment continues to address issues concerning people of color in Region 1 and the Hollywood Industry.

Ron is a native of Tallahassee, Florida and a long-tune resident of California and has been instrumental in getting our NAACP Resolutions moving to make changes in the Dialysis Industry. Thank you for all dialysis patients.

Following Mr. Hasson we will hear from patients from a Davita clinic that have been told they are moving to another location.

This location is in a different county, which means that patients who cannot drive, will not be able to cross county lines for transportation.

We will extend an invitation to Davita and see why this is becoming another form of perhaps excluding patients.

This is legal, as some of these companies are closing and opening new centers in other areas.

THE BATTLE LINES HAVE BEEN DRAWN AS BLACK FARMERS CHALLENGE THE STATE OF GEORGIA AND SECRETARY OF STATE BRIAN KEMP OVER VOTING RIGHTS FOR AFRICAN AMERICANS IN PREDOMINANTLY BLACK COUNTIES AND PRECINCTS IN GEORGIA.


August 21, 2018


 Black Farmers from south Georgia filed suit against the State of Georgia and Secretary of State Brian Kemp alleging violations of section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, among several claims. The Black Farmers assert that the State of Georgia and The Secretary of State have failed to enforce federal laws and maintain uniformity of legal issues among all the counties that make up the state. In particular, the state and secretary have been alleged, to what amounts to putting on a charade, political gerrymandering. It is without question that the state and secretary knows counties must have preclearance from the Department of Justice or the United States District Court in Washington, D.C. before the counties can shut down polling locations or precincts in predominantly African American counties or precincts.

 However, this will be a showdown of epic proportions. Also named in the petition are The National Republican Committee, The National Democratic Committee, The NAACP, The ACLU, The National Democratic Redistricting Committee, The State Republican Committee and The State Democratic Committee. The Black Farmers are united and have been fighting the USDA for years on similar civil rights issues. An interesting correlation has been drawn by the farmers and the history of questionable stances on civil rights issues by now Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue as former governor of the State of Georgia and his continued stance of denying Black Farmers the right to be heard at the administrative level.
