AAPDEP digs in to organize Africans in Houston!

HOUSTON—This past month, the All African People’s Development and Empowerment Project (AAPDEP) Houston chapter finalized our agenda and plans for the first half of 2013.
In an effort to increase participation, we are moving our bi-weekly meetings from the Uhuru House in the 5th Ward of Houston to a more centralized location at the Shape Community Center in the 3rd Ward area.
Meetings will take place every first and third Monday at 7pm.

Our first meeting at the Shape Center was held on Monday, February 4, in which we elected new officers for the positions of Chair, Secretary, Financial and Information with the purpose of keeping ourselves organized so we can continue to organize others.

Our community gardening work will continue to take place in the 5th Ward area as we prepare for the change in seasons and our spring crop planting.
We also plan to knock on the doors of residents in the 5th Ward community to explain the significance of this garden that they pass by every day and the vision of AAPDEP.
We at AAPDEP Houston are also excited to announce our upcoming “One Africa, One Nation” Marketplace Spring Festival, which will be held at the Fifth Ward Community Garden on May 4, 2013.
In addition to the Spring Festival, Director Aisha Fields will also be the keynote speaker at a “Build AAPDEP” community forum at SHAPE Community Center in Live Oak on May 3, 2013.
We are working to bring local musicians, vendors and hundreds from the community to attend the festival.
AAPDEP Director Aisha Fields will be in attendance as the keynote speaker of the event. Your financial contribution or donations of seeds, gardening tools and labor would be greatly appreciated.
Make checks or money orders payable to AAPDEP Houston and drop off other donations at the 5th Ward Community Garden at 3707 Brill Street, Houston, Texas 77026.
