Westchester County Political Conference 2018. “If black communities want to prosper just like all other communities there must be total participation in the political process. Personal responsibility is not enough. They must be responsible public policy to go hand-in-hand and uplifting our communities.”
The Westchester Black Political Conference recognizes that our country has become both a more diverse and unequal country. To be recognized as one of the wealthiest counties in the nation, policymakers face the urgent challenge of confronting growing wealth gap‘s by race and the ethnicity.
The Westchester Black Political Conference is born out of the idea of the historical first national Black political assembly formally known as the Gary convention, that was held on March 10, 1972, in Gary Indiana. The NBPA gathered around 10,000 African-Americans to discuss the advocate for black communities that undergo significant economic and social crisis. Part of their goal was to raise a number of black politicians elected to office, increase representation, and create an agenda for fundamental change.
