St. Pete NAACP Kicks Off ‘Silent No More’ Series
The four-part series seeks to hold candid community discussions on issues of race in St. Petersburg.
ST. PETERSBURG – The St. Petersburg branch of the NAACP will launch the first roundtable in its Silent No More series seeking to hold candid community discussions highlighting not only how race shapes the lives of St. Petersburg residents, but how the community can work together to find solutions.
Monday’s (Nov. 20) roundtable will feature St. Petersburg police Chief Anthony Holloway, local attorneys and NAACP leaders for a conversation on racism in the judicial system. Speakers will also examine disparities in drug enforcement as the opioid epidemic continues to ravage Florida. Through these conversations organizers hope to equip attendees with the tools they need to combat racism and build a more inclusive community.
The roundtable is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Monday at McCabe United Methodist Church, 2800 26th Ave. S, St. Petersburg. Sponsors are the St Petersburg Chapter of the NAACP and For Florida’s Future. Scheduled participants are Holloway; Maria Scruggs, president of the St. Petersburg NAACP; Dr. Basha Jordan, president of PET Drug Task Force Coalition; Angelica Jones, attorney at the Reyne Law Group; Jamila S. Little, attorney at Little Law, P.A.; and Carmen Miller, attorney at Lee & Lazzara, PLLC.
