The ACT-SO team had a great time at the awards. It was amazing to see so many African-Americans gathered in one place not to discuss issues or problems, but simply to celebrate the magnificence of African-American youth.
Our local Gold medallist, Jor’Denay, didn’t medal at National despite a stunning performance, but she was chosen over dozens of her peers for one of five speaking roles during the awards ceremony. She had to rehearse intensely the rest of the weekend, but she made connections and got experience that will serve her well into the future.

Regarding the in-custody injuries that led to the death of Mr Earl McNeil.
On July 11th, NAACP San Diego Branch President André Branch spoke in favor of Women Occupy San Diego’s proposed charter amendment to turn the CRB into the CPP – Commission on Police Practices. The measure passed the Rules Committee on a party line 3-2 vote, and goes on to the full Council, who will decide if it goes on the November ballot.
The fight for more independent oversight of the SDPD isn’t over, but we won this battle.
Our San Diego Gold Winner, Jor’Denay Collier, brought the house down at the 40th NAACP ACT-SO Awards in San Antonio. She was the final performer of the competition. Her performance was better even than she displayed in San Diego! We may be biased, but we thought she was magnificent!

Steve Dorner from the Housing Committee communicates the NAACP San Diego Branch’s support of the initiative proposed by Councilmember Alvarez. This initiative would raise the Transient Occupancy Tax (Hotel Tax) by 1%, and advise the Mayor to dedicate that 1% increase to reducing Homelessness.
Mr Dorner also put the Council on notice that should the measure pass, the NAACP will watch closely to see that the Mayor and Council follow the direction to spend the money on the Homeless.
Steve Dorner spoke on July 11th in favor of the $900M bond issue by the San Diego Housing Federation, which would provide 7500 new units of affordable housing. The measure passed the Rules Committee on a party line 3-2 vote, and goes on to the full Council, who will decide if it goes on the November ballot.
