Tabor 100 November 2018 Newsletter

  1. 1. 1 November 2018 Message from the President Hello, Tabor Neighbors! It has been a hectic Fall with the recent elections and Tabor 100’s quest to continue moving forward to create the Economic Empowerment Center. As you know, Tabor 100 does not engage in candidate endorsements and makes sure it is conducting itself in a non-partisan way at all times. As my good friend Nate Miles quotes: “We have no permanent enemies and we have no permanent friends, only permanent interests.” Our interests have always been helping our member and other minority businesses do better. The latest election should do that, both at the state legislative level and in the U.S. Congress. There are several new state Legislators of color in Olympia and in Washington DC. In D.C., a number of minority members of Congress are poised to wield the gavel of some very important committees. We urge our state Legislators and members of Congress, including Congressional members from Washington state, to promote minority business enterprises, protect the Disadvantaged Business Program and be bold about improving economics in our communities. At the state Legislative level, we will be promoting the repeal of I-200, which may happen through an initiative that must go through the Legislature before being placed on the ballot. More than 300,000 signatures are needed to send the repeal to the Legislature, and many people, including the three recent for- mer Governors — Evans, Locke and Gregoire — are working to abolish this law that prohibits race or gender consideration in public contracting, hiring and university admissions. We are only one of 9 states that ban this sort of affirmative action. Last year we came close to overturning I-200 with a group of legislators committed to its elimination. With legislators of color and other supporters, we hope that 2019 will be the year we will “fully” participate in the opportunities offered in the state by ending restrictions imposed by I-200. In an effort to strengthen our businesses prior to the repeal, we are promoting the Economic Empowerment Center. As you know, this has been a major goal for Tabor 100 and it looks like 2019 will also be “our” year. The Center will be a place where you can have a first class office, learn about public and private opportunities and receive the sort of “back office” support we all need (bookkeeping, estimating, conference facilities, etc.). We are pivoting to a new site in Tukwila which will afford us the opportunity to offer even more given its central location. See page 3 for more information. I am excited about the Fall because I know it will lead us to a “Blessed” 2019. The major objectives of Tabor 100 should be realized and our position to promote Tabor 100 businesses will be even greater. Declare: “We will speak what we seek until we see what we’ve said” #Godfidence.

  2. 2. 23 October 2018 General Meeting
  3. 3. 3 This is a quick update, an alert to an upcoming space tour, and finally, a related Dec 15 Tabor 100 General meeting presentation. Tabor is continuing our work to secure the Tabor Equity Empowerment Center. As you know, this center is to support economic growth and stability for our minority communities in particular. It will have: • 10,000 square feet for resources, rental offices, collaborative space • training and conference spaces and large meeting rooms • WMBE support including back-office services at subsidized rates, rental office space, "hot desk" and collaborative spaces, and support resources • Workforce development and CWA/PLA supports including recruitment and connections into education and workforce training for minorities, women and particularly African-American business, and support to guide WMBE firms for successful work and union partnerships within the PLA/CWA environments. Co-location with other resources, potentially including OMWBE and/or Urban League during 2019. We appreciate the many public agencies pursuing funding: our thanks in particular to Councilmember Bruce Harrell, those at King County, Leslie Jones of Sound Transit, Dave McFadden at the Port of Seattle, the State Department of Commerce, Pearl Leung of Vulcan and WSDOT executives. As you were aware, we were negotiating a lease in the central area for a well-suited building. Those lease negotiations have been terminated. We are now considering negotiations for space in Tukwila and welcome you to join a tour and provide comments. We will send a doodle poll to select the date/time. It will be the week of Nov. 26. We will not be able to offer personalized tours, so we hope you can attend the date/time and will send another announcement once we have it scheduled. The proposed building in Tukwila is central to many small WMBE firms, many immigrant-based firms and entrepreneurs. It is located very near to the labor union training programs (ANEW-PACE), the National Association of Minority Contractors (NAMC) meetings, and many labor unions including the King County Building Trades, as well as the State L&I offices. On December 15 at the upcoming Tabor 100 General Meeting, we are pleased to host the Priority Hire Seattle program to help our membership learn of the significant increase that program has in partnership with the King County Building Trade labor unisons for African-American and minority/women employment in the union construction trades. We appreciate your continued interest. Equity Empowerment Center Update By Nancy Locke
  4. 4. 4 A “Feel Good” Moment By Regina Glenn Tabor 100 Provides unique opportunities for networking and advocacy. Tabor helps business owners connect with each other, government agencies, and prime contractors. It convenes monthly key decision makers who share a wealth of information. And no other organization starts my Saturday better with a full meal that is reminiscent of home cooking and fellowship. The monthly greeting, “Hi Tabor Neighbors!,” is a feel good moment... as is Tabor’s Annual Gala. Pacific Communications Consultants, Inc., provides Communication consulting services in the areas of community outreach, public involvement, management training, and inclusion management. We have been blessed with a variety of complex and worthwhile community projects—some of the most exciting in the region— such as the Liberty Bank Building, WSDOT-SR 520 Bridge, and the "Addition" project for the Washington State Convention Center. As one of the first women to join Tabor 100, I have watched it’s evolution—from what it started to be, to what it has evolved to be— and I am inspired by what it can be as it reaches its full potential. We need to keep this organization and ones like it vital and thriving by being active members. INTERESTED IN HAVING YOUR BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTED IN THE NEWSLETTER?

  5. 5. 5 A California program was helping more black students earn college credit and graduate, so Highline College replicated it in Washington. Three years later, it's succeeding here too. Four years ago, a group of faculty and staff members at Highline College took an exploratory trip to the San Francisco Bay Area. Their mission: Find some way to help more black students earn enough college credit each school year and lower the rate at which they enter remedial classes — which they would pay for at full cost but earn no credit. Nationally, up to 60 percent of students attending college for the first time require some remediation in English, math or both, increasing the time it takes them to graduate and decreasing the chances that they’ll ever graduate at all. “It takes them a longer time to get to that college (credit) level, and that’s where a lot of our attrition comes from,” said Liz Word, a faculty member in communication studies at Highline in Des Moines. But at the Chabot and Diablo Valley colleges in Hayward and Pleasant Hill, California, Word and her colleagues discovered the Umoja Community program. Named after the Swahili word for “unity,” Umoja places small groups of its students together in the same set of classes that include cultural context through an African-American lens — such as studying the legacy and trauma of slavery in America on today’s black community. The program also includes mentorship and academic advising. Students in the program, according to its parent organization, are more likely to stay in college from one semester to the next, have higher grade-point averages and pass basic English and math classes at higher rates than their peers. At Chabot College, for example, 73 percent of Umoja students succeeded in their English courses, compared to 57 percent of non -Umoja students; a little more than half of Umoja students did the same in math, compared to 40 percent of non-Umoja students. In Washington state, only 16 percent of black students at community or technical colleges earn an associate degree within three years. For all students, the completion rate is 23 percent, according to data that Highline College provided from the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges. (Nationally, 20 percent of first-time, full-time students earn a degree or certificate at community college within three years.) The results in California persuaded administrators at Highline College to allow Word to pilot an Umoja Black Scholars program. And now, three years later and with nearly 100 students participating, Word can point to its impact on student success. Black scholars find support, success in Highline College pilot program By Neal Morton Seattle Times staff reporter Originally published November 16, 2018 at 5:00 am Updated November 16, 2018 at 5:26 pm Continued on page 6
  6. 6. 6 Black scholars find support, success in Highline College pilot program By Neal Morton Seattle Times staff reporter “We are still struggling with black students,” she said. However, “we’re making inroads at a larger scale than we ever have before.” Umoja has grown to more than five dozen college campuses across California. The pilot at Highline College is the first and only one outside of the Golden State, and it has spawned similar programs for Latino students and Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Island students attending the South King County campus. As of last winter, 47 percent of Umoja students at Highline completed a college-level English course within their first year of enrollment, compared to 33 percent of all black students. And while 29 percent of black students earn 45 college credits within that first year, 47 percent of Umoja students do the same. Word emphasized that kind of success is noteworthy considering that a full two-thirds of Umoja students are the first in their family to go to college. The age range of Umoja students, she added, spans from 16 to over 40. “We get students completing their GED (and) students who were previously incarcerated. We get everything,” Word said. “Community college plays this role where we take you as you are. Umoja comes in and makes sure you’re actually ready.” On Tuesday, Chalisa Thompson joined her fellow Umoja students in the college’s greenhouse to help them repot some bean plants in a class that merges environmental science with sociology. Thompson described the course as her favorite in the Umoja curriculum, and said it helped her think about how individuals can work within the structures of society to help make it better. And that’s a goal she plans to achieve once she earns her master’s degree in social work at the University of Washington. “I want to help people like me, people who have gone through the same trauma,” Thompson said. Earlier this month, Thompson — now student-body vice president — shared some of that trauma during a student panel the Black Education Strategy Roundtable hosted at its annual conference in Des Moines. Thompson recalled watching her mother being taken to prison when she was 10 years old. Her older brother died at 21, and after graduating from high school, she found herself without a place to live. “To go from a 1.7 GPA in high school to a 4.0 student now,” Thompson said, “for me to make that transformation says a lot about Umoja Black Scholars.” “Just using the word ‘scholar’ gave me hope as a student,” she added. “Umoja is really there to show you that yes, you can succeed.” After her panel, the manager of UW’s social-work program introduced herself to Thompson and pledged to get her in the door.
