The Black Caucus is governed by a nine (9) member Executive Board that is empowered to lead the organization from year to year. The Board meets once per month throughout the year. Vision We are a statewide collaborative of student organizations representing students of African Descent in the California Community Colleges. Together, we provide organizational development and leadership training throughout the state. We empower students to fulfill their greatest aspirations while encouraging them to be responsible, accountable, and valuable contributions to our communities. We develop outstanding leaders who create opportunities, overcome adversities, and positively impact the lives of others. In collaboration with our partners, we provide our students and our communities committed and competent representation. Mission As the Black Caucus, our goal is to achieve local and statewide representation of students of African Descent within the California Community College system. Additionally, we exist as a networking resource, which is to be used to exchange and assist like-minded individual campus organizations. History... The Black Caucus of CalSACC was charted as a caucus of the California Student Association of Community Colleges in 1998, though the group had informally existed as a social network of Black students for years prior. During the time of Propositions 209 and 187, when students of color were not being represented at the state-level in an equitable manner, and were ignored by the largely colorless student leadership voiceless students of color formally initiated steps to constitute themselves into caucuses. In 1999, the 1st Annual Leadership Conference was founded by Juanita Price, Black Caucus President and held at El Camino College. In 2003 and 2004, the Black Caucus participated in both “March in Marches,” organized by CalSACC. In 2005, CalSACC became inactive, but the Black Caucus has continued to be active due to a succession of committed student leaders and the success of the annual leadership conference
