WAG Advancing The Dream Week By Week

WAG Retreat

WAG Retreat

SAN BERNARDINO, CA- Since 1972, the Westside Action Group (WAG) has been advancing the dream week by week. A group of men on the West side of San Bernardino came together in 1972 and formed the Black Father’s organization to work together to advocate for youth in the community.  This event was the forerunner of WAG. WAG is a proactive organization for African Americans in San Bernardino County in general, but its primary focus is within the city of San Bernardino.

As part of WAG’s recognition of the 50th anniversary March on Washington, they sponsored a two-day retreat to develop a unified community action plan. The participants agreed on a set of goals that will be put into action through four committees. The committees are Economics and Community Development, Education, Health and Leadership and Professional Development. Community members or organizations that would like to participate in the ongoing development and implementation of the action plan are invited to attend the weekly meetings held each Monday at 12 p.m. at the Boys & Girls Club of San Bernardino, 1180 W 9th Street, San Bernardino, CA 92411.
