Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable Awards 100th Impact Micro Award in May

 

The Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable announced on Friday, May 3 its 100th Impact Micro Award. The 100th award was among the nine Impact Micro Awards for May. The May awards are part of its Building Self-Sustaining Communities Project. The Project supports organizations and individuals working in the most underserved communities in Los Angeles County and other cities. In May, we selected five teachers from The Watts Learning Center, three teachers from Crenshaw High School, and the organizations: the Prayers & Squares Ministry, and Wisdom From the Field Inc.  The funds will go to provide the teachers with much needed classroom materials, books, tapes, visual aids, office supplies, and computer equipment. The funding for the two organizations selected will go to assist them in their counseling, tutoring, and service providing to the sick and disabled.

“The 100th Impact Micro Award this month marks a true milestone in our community donor program that began in June, 2011. The program was initiated to meet the crucial need for funding of grassroots, community service, and advocacy groups and fund starved inner city schools. We felt it imperative that we help fill the funding gap to boost them in their efforts to build community sustainability in under-served communities,” says Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson, “ Building Self-Sustaining Communities Award Program aims to further community self-reliance and independence. This is the pathway to citizen empowerment.”

April Impact Awards to Chicago’s St. Dorothy Elementary School Teachers

The Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable announced its Impact Awards for March on Thursday, April 11. The April awards are part of its Building Self-Sustaining Communities Project. The Project supports organizations and individuals working in Los Angeles County and other cities most underserved communities. In April, we selected ten teachers from Chicago’s St. Dorothy Elementary School to receive individual Impact Micro Cash Awards. The funds will go to provide the teachers with much needed classroom materials, books, tapes, visual aids, office supplies, and computer equipment. Severe budget cutbacks within the Chicago School District and other school districts nationally have sharply restricted the funds teachers and administrators have to provide materials for students.

Wells Fargo Foundation is a major partner with the Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable’s Impact Micro Award Program.

“Budget cutbacks and the on-going struggle of small community service groups for funding have made it more imperative that we help fill the funding gap to boost them in their efforts to build community sustainability in under-served communities,” says Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson, “The Building Self-Sustaining Communities Project aims to further community self-reliance and independence. On a personal note, it gives me special pleasure to award the teachers at St. Dorothy our cash awards. I was a proud graduate of St. Dorothy in the 1960s. The awards allow me to give back to a school that did so much to set me and legions of other young African-Americans on our achievement and life career path.”

Family Pays Memorial Tribute to Essie Mae Washington Williams

 

The family of Dr. Essie Mae Washington Williams, educator, civil rights activist, author and daughter of Strom Thurmond, paid a memorial tribute to Mrs. Washington Williams on Monday, February 4. Mrs. Washington Williams passed away Sunday, February 3 in Whiterock, South Carolina.

“On behalf of the Williams family we are deeply saddened by the loss of the matriarch of our family,” says Mrs. Maria Hutchinson, Mrs. Washington William’s first born granddaughter, “We have plans for a dedication to the memory of our mother and grandmother and great-grandmother.”

Mrs. Hutchinson further notes, “Her passing is a great and deep loss for our family. The autobiographical saga of her life and family history touched so many people outside of our family. And for that she will always be remembered.”

 

“Mrs. Washington-Williams dedication to education, civil rights and her monumental story of growing up in the Jim Crow Deep South was a moving story of triumph, “says Earl Ofari Hutchinson, President, Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable, “The public revelation that she was the daughter of Strom Thurmond touched off a renewed national discussion on race, gender and identity in America. On a personal note, I am truly honored to have known her and talked with her at our many family gatherings. This deepened my admiration for her.

Mrs. Washington Williams was truly an America treasure.”

 

Mrs. Washington Williams family thanks all for their prayers and thoughts. She leaves behind 3 children, 13 grandchildren, and 11 great grandchildren.

Civil Rights Leaders Will Call for Hate Crime Charges Against Suspects in Compton Racial Attacks
Civil Rights Leaders Will Call for a Walk Against Racial Fear If Violence Continues
 
Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson and other civil rights leaders on Monday, January 28 at Noon 153rd St, & Compton Bl. Compton 90220 will call for hate crime charges against the gang members sought in the attacks on a Compton black family and suspected of racist threats against other blacks in Compton. The racially motivated attack and threats continue a periodic disturbing pattern of violence and threats against African-Americans in some Los Angeles County neighborhoods. The clear intent is to harass, intimidate and drive blacks from ethnically changing areas.

If the threatened violence continues, the coalition of civil rights leaders, says Hutchinson, will call for and hold a march against racial fear in Compton.

 “The terrorizing of a black family and the threat of intimidation of other blacks in Compton demands vigorous prosecution. The centerpiece of that must be the filing of hate crime charges against the suspects of the attacks,” says Hutchinson,” A tough hate crimes prosecution sends the strong message that hate violence in L.A. County will not be tolerated. A walk against racial fear will underscore that the community will not be intimidated by racist threats.”
