Speakers include Rosemary Duenez, Wanda Johnson, Jeralynn Brown-Blueford, Author Dinyal New, Anne Weills, Dr. Siri Brown, Rashida Grinage, Dr. Paula Clark, & more….
The event is graciously being hosted by Center Of Hope Community Church.
This will be a day dedicated to healing and empowerment! Together we can ascend past our pain and begin the process of healing so that we can reclaim our voices and resources to establish a national program agenda for the empowerment of mothers/families to become agents of change in our community.
Jeralynn Brown-Blueford is the mother of Alan Blueford. On May 6, 2012, Alan was unjustly murdered by an Oakland police officer. Jeralynn has not stopped fighting for justice in her son’s name since the day he was taken from her and from this world. A large part of Jeralynn’s work towards justice is dedicated to helping to bring unity & healing to the community, especially the community affected by racial profiling & police terrorism.
This conference is the official kickoff for The Alan Blueford Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to doing exactly what Helping Hearts 2 Heal is about, “the empowerment of mothers/families to become agents of change in our community.
The conference is free for all to attend, however, we are asking for a suggested, not mandatory, $10 pre-registration fee so that we are able to determine how many guests to accommodate, lunch will be included at the event.
We are also encouraging you to donate to this fund whether or not you can attend the conference, all proceeds will be used towards event related costs which we are budgeting to be $5,000. Any amount raised above & beyond our financial needs for the conference will be the start money for The Alan Blueford Foundation whose goal, put simply, is to help heal the community, especially the community affected by racial profiling & police terrorism.
