During the meeting and lunch discussions and plans were formulated on how start making the streets of San Bernardino safer and to stop some of the violence and prostitution that has been going on in the city for far too long.
The first plan of action will be an I.S.A.H. (It Starts At Home) Juneteenth Block Party, which will be held on the Wall Street, where the home of WWAM sits. Wall Street is one of the most scare streets in the City of San Bernardino. The celebration will start from Baseline and Wall to 16th and Wall. During the event there will be voter registration booths, a local college fair, and much more to assist in getting the lives of San Bernardino’s people back on track to success. In addition, Wall Street of New York will also be making an appearance to Wall Street in San Bernardino. There will also be scholarships available for youth in the neighborhood.
The “I.S.A.H. Juneteenth Celebration” will be a joint effort between WWAM, Street Positive (Terry Boykins), and Sweet Alice. Sweet Alice Harris and her husband Allen Harris are both the parents of Watts. For more information or to be a vendor, please email Deborah Winn at email@example.com.
