Be a ‘Prophetic Voice’ on April 4

ISAIAHThis gathering of African American people of faith, organized by the strong voices for racial justice at ISAIAH, will lift your spirits!  

Thursday, April 4, 2013

10:00-11:00 a.m.

Minnesota Capitol Rotunda

The time is now for action. Minnesota’s African American communities face some of the largest disparities in the country.

  • Only 49% of African American students graduate from high school on time.
  • Minnesota has the highest employment gap in the country between African Americans and whites.
  • The median household income for African Americans in our state is the lowest of all racial and ethnic groups.

Use your voice to Speak, Challenge, and Urge on a path to greater justice for African Americans in Minnesota.
