  • Text: (Draft) June 6, 1968 Revised June 12, 1968 MEMORANDUM J ' 70: \Local Coalitions THE NATIONAL COALITION PROGRAM OF TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE Responding to the Emergency’ Convocation of August 1967 and to the critical urban crisis of our nation, many cities have formed local coalitions and many are or soon will be in the organizational phase. These local coalitions are becoming a vital forum for communication among different elements in the community. They are a mechanism for assess~- ing community problems, establishing priorities, coordinating efforts and initiating new programs. They are also extremely potent vehicles for members of coalitions to individually and collectively speak out on national issues and to support, propose, or oppose legislation affecting urban problems and the resources needed for their solution. The National Urban Coalition, in an effort to maximize the aims and objectives of local coalitions, will make available through its staff a broad technical assistance program at the request of the local soalition: This program is developed within the limits of resources presently available to the national Coalition to meet needs of local coalitions. It will be expanded and/or modified as those needs change. v % The National Urban Coalition's technical assistance pro- gram will foie from assisting communities to organize and launch local coalitions to concentrated assistance for specific programs. To accomplish this assistance program, the national coalition has divided its staff 17 into four a ates: the Local Coalition Division, the Program Development Division, the Communications Division and the separate Action Council Division. (1) The Local Coalition Division is the operational staff of the national Coalition. Its primary task is to explain the urban coalition concept and assist communities in or- ganizing local coalitions. It will also render general technical assistance on coalition programs and relate national issues to local coalition objectives. (2) The Program Development Division is the program specialist staff of the national Coalition. Its primary task is to provide expert assistance in specific program areas by its staff members and through its consultant resources. It will also be the major channel for the assembly and dissemination of technical program information relative to local coalition activities. (3) The Communications Division (to be filled in by Brian Duff) i x (4) The Urban Coalition Action Council is a separate unit of the national Coalition. The primary functions of its staff will be to promote social improvements in the nation's urban centers through its study of proposed legislation and its mobilization of community leaders across the country to support, propose and oppose legislation affecting urban problems and the resources for their solution. Local coalitions will address requests for all forms of technical assistance to the Local Coalition Division. As the operational staff of the national Coalition, these staff members are assigned to each of the local coalitions throughout the country. They will either respond directly to the request or, if it requires extremely technical problems, refer it to the appropriate specialized division. The Urban Coalition Action Council staff will deal directly with coalitions and coalition members. The national Coalition will provide the following forms of technical assistance upon request: 1. Provide assistance to new communities in identifying and bringing together local leaders who might be interested in the formation of a coalition. (local) 2. Provide assistance to new communities in explaining the philosophy and objectives of The Urban Coalition and in the formation and representative character of organizing and permanent steering committees.

  • Text: October 20, 1967 Mr. Erwin Stevens, President Citizens Central Advisory Council 799 Parsons Street, S. W. Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mr, Stevens; I am sure that you are aware of the movement at the national level to develop a strong coalition of urban interests in an effort to exert more influence in national programs and priorities for the benefit of our cities, Representatives of business, labor, civil rights, religion, education and Mayors of urban cities have joined together in an Urban Coalition to provide coordinated machinery for getting the story of our big city problems across to the nation. I am attaching some information materials on the Urban Coalition. These will explain the background and goals of the national steering committee. It has been recognized from the beginning that in order to be effective, local counter-part coalitions must be developed in all parts of the country to support these goals. It is my belief that for years Atlanta has been able to grow and prosper through an effective and informal coalition relationship of business and govern- ment and with the support of the other areas of interest which are a part of the national coalition effort. I believe, however, that we need to recognize a little more formally the coalitions which keep our city moving and also to develop a local coalition relation+ ship with the national Urban Coalition, fe] Mr. Stevens Page Two October 20, 1967 It is my thinking that an initial step would be for us to get together the top representatives of these key interest groups to form a local cbalition steering committee and invite the participation by other organized groups. The initial steering committee could be composed of the Mayor, as chief elected official of the city, the President of the Chamber of Commerce, the President of the Atlanta Labor Council, the President of the Atlanta Christian Council, the Co« Chairman of the Summit Leadership Conference, the Superintendent of public education, and the Chairman of the Citizens Central Advisory Council, who is the elected representative of participants in the Economic Opportunity program. I have drafted a statement which might be considered by this group which recognizes the need for a local coalition and endorses the declaration of principles of the national coalition. A copy of the principles of the national coalition is also attached for your consideration, By recognizing the existence of a coalition we will be able to better communicate urban problems and focus maximum resources upon their solutions. In order that we might consider this proposal I have invited the following people to meet with me at my office at City Hall on Wednesday, October 25, at 10:00 a.m.: Mr. A. H. Sterne, President Atlanta Chamber of Commerce Rev. Samuel Williams Co-Chairman Summit Leadership Conference Mr. Robert J. Butler, President Atlanta Labor Council Mr. Stevens Page Three October 20, 1967 Ad rify Rev. Bevel Jones, President Christian Council of Metropolitan Atlanta, Inc. Dr. John W. Letson Superintendent Atlanta Public Schools Mr, Erwin Stevens, President Citizens Central Advisory Council Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Inc. Sincerely yours, Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor

  • Text: October 27, 1967 NATIONAL COORDINATORS WEEKLY REPORT LOCAL COALITIONS Six cities have now announced the formation of urban coalitions and intend to affiliate with The Urban Coalition--Detroit, New York City, Minneapolis, Gary, Indianapolis, and Atlanta. Sparked by the Chicago "Mobilizing Urban Coalitions" planning session dozens of other cities now have organizing committees. The California League of Cities, meeting in San Francisco, formally endorsed the formation of coalitions in all its constituent cities on a motion by Mayor Floyd Hyde of Fresno supported by officials of San Diego. Both cities announced they are organizing coalitions. Regional meetings like the one in Chicago have been scheduled for San Francisco on November 30 and New York in early December. PRIVATE EMPLOYMENT On October 25, some 40 major Pittsburgh employers and labor léaders attended a meeting hosted by Mayor Joseph M. Barr on private industry plans for hiring hard-core unemployed. On October 27, at the invitation of Mayor Herman Katz of Gary and Mr. George Jedenoff, Superintendent of the U.S. Steel Gary Works, The Urban Coalition Task Force on Private Employment joined with several hundred leading Gary employers and unions in developing a program of expanded employment opportunities. Mr. David Stahl, of Mayor Daley's office representing the Task Force, spoke briefly at the luncheon. Other local meetings on private employment have been scheduled for Baltimore (November 14) and Detmit (November 21). Task Force co- chairman Gerald L. Phillippe will speak at both meetings. In Baltimore, Mayor Theodore McKeldin and Council President Thomas D'Alasandra and fifteen major industrial leaders are convening a meeting of top management representatives of Baltimore firms to launch a program of expanding Negro entrepreneurship in the ghetto stimulated by sub-contract arrangements with leading industries. (2) A This is being viewed as a "breakthrough" type of program and is being carried out through the Baltimore Council on Equal Business Opportunity (CEBO). CEBO is a project of The Potomac Institute. In Detroit, the New Detroit Committee's employment and education committee is convening a meeting of industrial and labor leaders to discuss expansion of private employment in the ghetto. The Ford Motor Company has announced that it will recruit 6500 new workers from the central city and the Michigan Bell Telephone Company has announced plans to concentrate its training efforts in an all- Negro high school in the center of Detroit. LEGISLATION Coalition co-chairmen Andrew Heiskell and A. Philip Randolph urged members of the House/Senate Conference Committee on Independent Offices Appropriations to adopt the Senateé‘s recommendations for funding model cities and rent supplements--$637 for model cities and $40 million for rent supplements. Rent supplements received $10 million (the House had earlier approved no funds) and model cities received $312 (the House had approved $237 million). The fact sheet and position paper on the Social Security amendments will be mailed to the Steering Committee the first part of next week. EDUCATIONAL DISPARITIES The Task Force will meet on November 7 to map its program and round out its membership. HOUSING, RECONSTRUCTION AND INVESTMENT The Task Force had to reschedule its October 19th meeting for early November. EQUAL HOUSING OPPORTUNITIES Task Force working committee meets November 3 in Washington to consider a pilot three city praject involving development of new lower-income housing on an open occupancy basis in suburban areas. Also scheduled for the meeting are plans to draw together some 300 Fair Housing Committees now operating in suburban communities for a national action session on open housing to be held in Chicago early in January.

SWEAT, JR., Director of Governmental Liaison Mr. A. H. Sterne, Jr., President Atlanta Chamber of Commerce Post Office Box 4418 Atlanta, Georgia 30302 Dear Billy: Iam sure that you are aware of the movement at the national level to develop a strong coalition of urban interests in an effort to exert more influence in national programs and priorities for ~ the benefit of our cities. Representatives of business, labor, civil rights, religion, education and Mayors of urban cities have joined together in an Urban Coalition to provide coordinated machinery for getting the story of our big city problems across to the nation. I am attaching some information materials on the Urban Coalition. These will explain the background and goals of the national steering committee. It has been recognized from the beginning that in order to be effective, local counter-part coalitions must be developed in all parts of the country to support these goals. It is my belief that for years Atlanta has been able to grow and prosper through an effective and informal coalition relationship of business and govern- ment and with the support of the other areas of interest which are a part of the national coalition effort. I believe, however, that we need to recognize a little more formally the coalitions which keep our city moving and also to develop a local coalition relation- ship with the national Urban Coalition. Mr. Sterne Page Two October 19, 1967 It is my thinking that an initial step would be for us to get together the top representatives of these key interest groups to form a local coalition steering committee and invite the participation by other organized groups. The initial steering committee could be composed of the Mayor, as chief elected official of the city, the President’ of the Chamber of Commerce, the President of the Atlanta Labor Council, the President of the Atlanta Christian Council, the Co- Chairman of the Summit Leadership Conference, the Superintendent of public education, and the Chairman of the Citizens Central Advisory Council, who is the elected representative of participants in the Economic Opportunity program, I have drafted a statement which might be considered by this group which recognizes the need for a local coalition and endorses the declaration of principles of the national coalition. A copy of the principles of the national coalition is also attached for your consideration, By recognizing the existence of a coalition we will be able to better communicate urban problems and focus maximum resources upon their solutions, -In order that we might consider this proposal I have invited the following people to meet with me at my office at City Hall on Wednesday, October 25, at 10:00 a.m.: Mr. A.

We make this request because since 1920, our Agency has been concerned with urban problems, particularly, in areas of Housing, Health and Welfare, Job De- velopment and Employment and Youth Incentives and Education. We employ the techniques of Community Organization in our attempt to do preventive social work, We are an United Appeal Agency and should we have a success- ful United Appeal Campaign, January, 1968, we expect to substantially add to our community resources development efforts; which would greatly add to the ability to communicate with the grass-root people in Metropolitan Atlanta; both in the areas served by Poverty Programs and otherwise. On the Urban Coalition Steering Committee, we would want to be identified as an Educational Community Services Agency supported by all of the citizens of the Atlanta Community. We respectfully ask that this request be granted. Very truly vours, yb ted H. Qauset& f <= Harold N. Arnold, mg . 7 / : : Executive Director HNA:vbm "

Al Bows, who as you know is the upcoming president of the Chamber, does plan to be on hand. I am proud of the way in which you keep probing into our problems and looking for solutions. Your urban coalition may prove quite helpful. I think the business community and its leaders have not done all they should have, and I hope to see many more business people become more intimately involved in and concerned with the city's problems. There must be some way through the Chamber to bring this about, and I would welcome any suggestions you might have. Sincerely yours, AHS/frb C if CLL ee j—
