Universal African Peoples Organization Economic and Political Agenda/Coffee Core Values

On behalf of the Universal African Peoples Organization (UAPO), we would like to express a sincere thanks to the over 100 people who were in attendance to our "Meet and Greet Community Leaders Program"on a cold night this past Tuesday, January 30th.  We also thank the various civic, social and progressive organizations in attendance. A special thanks to the elected officials who shared their political wisdom and that included President of the St. Louis Board of Aldermen, Lewis Reed; St. Louis License Collector, Mavis Thompson; and the Mayor of Pine Lawn, Terry Epps. Also, in attendance were the Committeemen from the 3rd ward Anthony Bell and the 18th, Jesse Todd.

In that this program was done in spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and after UAPO Vice President, Safiyah Chauvin welcomed everyone; the Manager/General of the UAPO, Amari Sneferu provided a thoughtful and insightful presentation on how Dr, King impacted his life. Also, throughout the program the President/General of the UAPO, Zaki Baruti reminded the audience that a key objective of the program was for the UAPO to outline its 2018 Economic and Political Agenda. Accordingly, after sharing the UAPO calendar which is attached above, Zaki addressed the agenda.

in respect to the Economic Agenda, he emphasized it was twofold; Buy Black- Buy Black- Black Black which he had the audience enthusiastically repeat several times. Secondly,he urged the audience to continually support the ongoing UAPO boycott of different economic engines of America, which included US Bank, Shell Gas Stations, Macy's, Dillard's, Burger King, Jet Blue and the NFL. This boycott was called in response to another racist police officer (Jason Stockley) being set free after murdering an unarmed Black man, Anthony Lamar Smith in 2011. Please note: visit www.uapo.org and click News World, then open Fall 2017 Special Edition to view details of boycott.

Finally, the program closed on a high energy level when Zaki laid out the Most Progressive Political Movement of the 21st Century--(The National Political Empowerment Movement To Achieve Proportionate Political Representation). Again to that end, the audience  appreciated the UAPO endorsed candidate for  Missouri State Representative District 86 and Activist, Farrakhan Shegog. Like the renowned Minister Louis Farrakhan, Shegog captivated the people with his remarks.

The evening closed on a very high note when Zaki introduced the Missouri UAPO candidate for United States Senator, Ms Coffee Wright. In the spirit of famed civil rights activists Fannie Lou Hamer and Shirley Chisholm, Ms Coffee completely motivated the people with her logic for seeking such a powerful political position, especially when there's only three Black US Senators in a Senate of one hundred. If we had our fair share it should be at least thirteen Black US Senators, because our population is 13% (Proportionate Political Representation). The audience completely  embraced Ms Coffee's candidacy and now she is on to the race.

Attached above is Coffee's Core Values.
