RESOLUTION NO. 010213

 

Recognizing The Diamond Network, Blenheim Elementary School and East Meyer Community Association in commemorating the week of February 4-10, 2001, as National Black Family Technology Awareness Week.

 

WHEREAS, technology has transformed the way we live today and with less than a third of all Black households owning personal computers, those opportunities are missed by many African-American children and families; and

 

WHEREAS, in this third annual Black Family Technology Awareness Week, the focus is on helping Black families and youth become part of the technological revolution; and

 

WHEREAS, Black organizations, individuals and churches across the country are joining with industry, government and educational systems to celebrate this week by hosting or participating in a variety of local activities and with the help of Black technology leaders and the generous support of the Sprint Corporation, technology will become a household word for African Americans; and

 

WHEREAS, on Tuesday, February 27, 2001, at Blenheim Elementary School, there will be a panel discussion on how technology is affecting employment, education and the Kansas City metropolitan community life; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby recognize The Diamond Network, Blenheim Elementary School and the East Meyer Community Association and declare the week of February 4-10, 2001, as National Black Family Technology Awareness Week; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that copies hereof be presented to The Diamond Network, Blenheim Elementary School and the East Meyer Community Association for their dedication to the community in bringing enlightenment about the technological revolution.
