Happy #BlackHistoryMonth! Today, it's my pleasure to highlight the Igbo Union of Northern California, led by Ike Orji; Concord resident, Anthony Ihejet; Dr. Ry Chimezie, and Carolyn Onuoha, Pharmacist-in-Charge at Concord-based Solano Pharmacy. The organization's mission is to to promote and maintain the Igbo Cultural Heritage and share with the Northern California diaspora. Their goal is to establish a cultural center here in Concord to carry out this mission. General Coordinator Ike Orji says, "The Igbo Union of Northern California stands with Black people around the world. We join the recognition of the Black struggle and celebrate Black History Month."

With the sun shining and the weather warming, it's a great opportunity to check out all of the artwork in downtown Concord! I love the new "Goddess Victoria" mural and the giraffe sculptures near the Galindo Home. What is your favorite? Take a self-tour using the mural map here: If you are a property owner with a wall in mind for a mural, don't miss the @Local Edition Creative "Mural Wall Call," happening now through March 15: #creativeconcord

Recently, my City Council colleagues and I received an update from Contra Costa County Health Services regarding the A3 Miles Hall Crisis Call Center. A3 is Contra Costa County’s innovative approach to assuring that Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime has access to mental and behavioral health support during a crisis. The City of Concord is proud to have been involved in the development of A3, with the @Concord Police Department playing a significant role in the development of the County Mobile Crisis Response Team response to in-progress mental health crisis calls and call-diversion. And, Concord has the highest call volumes in part due to the fact that Concord PD is working to connect people to A3, ensuring that those experiencing behavioral health crises receive professional, timely and compassionate support.

As a reminder, anyone with a mental or behavioral health emergency (or their family member or law enforcement official) can call 1-844-844-5544 and be connected to a mental health clinician who will provide care over the phone or send a mobile care team. Learn more about A3 through the video below:
