Message to the Community
from PCOL Convener, Rahim Islam

The attainment of the Black economic agenda, like civil rights legislation, must be like be achieved by being laser focused and persistent. We must first start by getting every Black man, woman, and child to carry the economic message because everything in America comes down to our ability to implement this agenda and this cannot be a part of anyone else’s agenda. It must be ours alone. Like pre-1970, every Black-led organization must adopt our economic agenda no matter what side of the coin you support. We must all align as best as possible to achieve unity in spirit (the same unity we showed to achieve civil rights).
