Nahshon Nicks, CREDI Program Director, will host his Empowerment Men’s Conference, presented by the First Coast Leadership Foundation.
Former District 7 city council candidate, Nahshon Nicks, is continuing his efforts of advocating for the low income communities in Jacksonville. It’s because of this, Nicks has partnered with the First Coast Leadership Foundation to produce the second installment of his quarterly conference. This free event is focused on connecting, empowering, educating and providing resources for boys and men in Duval County. With the heavy amount of lives lost through violence and crime, Nicks is hopeful these quarterly conferences will be a resource to the community.
The quarter’s conference will feature roundtable workshops on Mentorship, Community Development, Health, Entrepreneurship, Law, Character, Education, Insurance and Life Planning. The table workshops will be led by an impactful group of local entrepreneurs, educators, business men and more. The presenters will include Keith Blue of Farmer’s Insurance; George Maxey of Northside Coalition; Commander Willie J. Brown, retired U S Navy; Obi Anum of Anum Law; Nelson McCoy of The Center One Foundation and Dr. Rasool Kamma Jr, Pharmacist.
This quarter’s conference is sponsored by Duval Bail Bonds and Olopade Solomon Architect Inc. The conference will take place on February 22nd at the Bradham Brooks Library, located at 1755 Edgewood Avenue West Jacksonville, Florida 32208 from 11 am to 2 pm.
