For 10 years, the community has presented the People’s State of the City, a powerful reminder of how we have embraced and built power in our city of Long Beach. We must remember that we as community members hold power. People Power. Tonight we celebrate the big wins and ways every day people have been empowered to make positive change in our community.
Let’s stay fueled by the many people-powered wins we’ve accomplished together over the years after putting pressure on policy makers. Let’s call on the valuable community connections we’ve created. And, let’s be inspired by the movements we’ve pushed forward when they were needed most. Today, more than ever, we need to continue to push ahead together.
Tonight’s People’s State of the City addresses racism, ageism, sexism, and other forms of discrimination and oppression that have impacted us, as well as how we’ve steadily fought against these issues, and will continue to do so, so that future generations have an improved quality of life and sense of wellbeing in our city.
Join as we celebrate the past and build the future.
