Hundreds of participants gathered at the Towngate Park in Moreno Valley on Saturday, August 25 in celebration of the city’s 6th Annual African American Family Reunion.
The event was hosted by Moreno Valley’s African American Coalition and there was no charge to attend.
Not only did those who participated enjoy free food and live entertainment, during the gathering attendees also had opportunities to learn more about a variety of services available to them. More than twenty vendors provided information on subjects that ranged from health to education to employment and beyond.
This year’s event was made possible in part, due to the support of several sponsors including the NAACP, the Black Voice News, Congressman Mark Takano and Senator Richard Roth.
The African American Coalition was founded by Dr. Denise Fleming and consists of representatives from several different organizations, entrepreneurs, community leaders and residents who work together to achieve common goals.
The group meets monthly and organizes activities throughout the year including the Red & Black Ball held each February. More information about the coalition is available at http://www.facebook.com/aacaucusr19/.
