The newly formed chapter of BLEXIT, which is part of a national conservative movement to educate and empower minorities across America, is hosting a social gathering on Saturday, Aug. 21, from 4-6 p.m.
The gathering, which takes place at the Harley Davidson shop (4334 Spenard Rd.) will include a cookout social and discussion on the current state of local schools. Specifically, the group will explore ways to impact the local school board.
According to the national BLEXIT website, the organization looks to instill an appreciation of “our great country by highlighting the principles of the United States and the importance of self-reliance.” The group takes a keen interest in criminal justice reform, building and supporting strong minority families and upholding the value of life and the “sanctity of every individual.” The national movement was founded by Candace Owens and Brandon Tatum based on a shared desire to build a better future for America.
