Ben Frazier travels to the United Nations; Compost Jax; Jacksonville NAACP; The Move
Jacksonville activist and civil rights leader Ben Frazier has accepted an invitation to speak next Tuesday in Geneva, Switzerland, to the United Nations Committee to Eliminate Racial Discrimination. The United Nations has been the guardian of human rights across the planet for 77 years. This UN committee monitors human rights violations across the globe. Frazier plans to tell this committee that recent Florida laws can be defined as human rights violations.
The City of Jacksonville recently approved a city compost facility. This is the first-ever commercial food composting company in Jacksonville.
A coalition of groups recently filed for a preliminary injunction on behalf of the Jacksonville NAACP Branch, the Northside Coalition of Jacksonville and others. The goal is to halt implementation of political lines for City Council and School Board that the plaintiffs say are racially gerrymandered and dilute Black representation.
Guest: Isaiah Rumlin, president of the Jacksonville NAACP.
