Hello Friend,

We are excited to announce our three keynote speakers for the 2020 State Assembly <[link removed]>.

Ajamu Baraka is the National Organizer and National Spokesperson for Black Alliance for Peace. He was the Green Party nominee for Vice President in 2016. Baraka served as the founding executive director of the US Human Rights Network, a national network that grew to over 300 U.S.-based organizations and 1500 individual members. In 2019, the US Peace Memorial Foundation awarded Baraka with the US Peace Prize <[link removed]> for his activism against militarism, and imperialism as well as his work for peace.

Kali Akuno is a co-founder and co-director of Cooperation Jackson which advocates for sustainable community development, economic democracy, and community ownership. He is the Director of Human Rights Education at the U.S. Human Rights Network as well as an organizer with the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement.

Marsha Coleman-Adebayo is an author, scholar, whistleblower, and civil rights leader. She is chair of the Macedonia Baptist Church’s social justice ministry and a member of the Bethesda African Cemetery Coalition.  She was a senior policy analyst at the EPA where she exposed how mining vanadium in South Africa was harming the environment and human health. The EPA retaliated against her for this action for which she successfully sued the agency. This resulted in the passage of the Notification of Federal Employees Anti-discrimination and Retaliation Act (No FEAR Act) which protects whistleblowers. She received her doctorate degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
