Cincinnati, Ohio - Saturday, January 18, Communities United For Action (CUFA) set our direction for 2020 and beyond at our Community Congress. Issues for the upcoming year include Sewer Justice, Affordable Utilities, and Fair Housing.
CUFA members elected our 2020-2023 Board of Directors: Clark Beck, Roger Davis, Roy Davis, Robin Harrison, Willie Hopkins, Marvin Kraus, Elder Donell Raglin, and Deborah Sims.
Guest speaker Pastor Peterson Mingo, of Christ Temple Full Gospel Baptist Church, congratulated CUFA by saying, "The things that you have accomplished are miracles... people get worried when you walk in a room - because you are CUFA. This is not a Tea Club, you have warriors in this room."
CUFA members committed to growing our power by organizing people and organizing money. The group got off to a great start by developing a membership recruitment plan and raising $245 for CUFA's work the day of the Congress.
