Derrick Luckett, the President of the California Association of Real Estate Brokers (African American REALTORS®), recently invited Diane’s district director Jordan Marks to address the San Diego chapter of the Black American Political Association of California (BAPAC). At the event, Marks spoke about the ways in which the Board of Equalization can help nonprofits and small businesses in the African-American community. Ray King, BAPAC President Dr. Willie Blair, and the President of the Urban League of San Diego were among the community leaders in attendance. This event was hosted by the Neighborhood House Association, an organization that strives to empower the residents of San Diego through various education and wellness programs.
BAPAC works to ensure that all citizens are effectively represented in aspects related to government, education, and economy. In October, BAPAC members from around the State of California will visit the 4th district to attend the annual Black American Political Association of California’s “Hall of Fame Convention,” in celebration of community builders of the region. This convention is sponsored by Qualcomm, The Unified Port of San Diego, and the California Endowment.
