The 2019 San Antonio Disparity Study has been released and it’s not good for blacks. “On behalf of the San Antonio Area Asset Funders Network (AFN), we are proud to present a comprehensive look at the financial health of low-income San Antonio families.” It is austere at best for blacks as we come in dead last in all opportunities of life here in SA. While the reporters of the information are proud to release this report, the city of San Antonio has a problem- there is a great disparity (inequality).
The report states, “This data and community asset-building scan offers insights into communities that are being left behind in the city of San Antonio.“
We’ve reported 1,000s of stories for 25 years that support all the data found, comprised and presented within the 2019 Disparity Study. We will continue to do so and fight for our leaders to be held accountable to action. Inclusivity is not a choice. See full report HERE.
District 2 City Councilwoman, Jada Andrews-Sullivan, will go before a Judge on September 9th for an injunction hearing on her D2 residency. Jada’s mother told the Express-News, “The young lady knows she needs to live in the district” referring to her daughter- the Councilwoman.
Long time community leader and Civil Rights Attorney, Mr. James Myart, filed the lawsuit last week, which states that the Councilwoman must have lived in the district she sought election for for 6 months prior to her assuming the position. The Councilwoman must now prove her residency in order to continue to serve.
