Proclaim February 2021 as Black History Month

As a Special Order of Business, the City Council would like to recognize the month of February 2021 as Black History Month.
The month of February was officially recognized as Black History Month by the United States Government in 1975, and since then, February has been designated as Black History Month.

Black History Month is an annual celebration that recognizes the important contributions made by African Americans throughout our nation's history. Black History Month honors the historic leaders of the African American Community who have fought for civil liberties and serves as a reminder to remember those who have sacrificed and suffered in their pursuit for equality and to honor those achievements that have shaped the United States.

In honor of Black History Month, the Mayor has signed a City Proclamation proclaiming the month of February 2021 as Black History Month in the City of Santa Clara, which will be accepted by Milan Balinton, Executive Director of the African American Community Service Agency.
This is an information report only and no action is being taken by the City Council and no environmental review under the California Environmental Quality Act ("CEQA") is required.

There is no fiscal impact to the City other than staff time.

Public contact was made by posting the Council agenda on the City's official-notice bulletin board outside City Hall Council Chambers. A complete agenda packet is available on the City's website and in the City Clerk's Office at least 72 hours prior to a Regular Meeting and 24 hours prior to a Special Meeting. A hard copy of any agenda report may be requested by contacting the City Clerk's Office at (408) 615-2220, email or at the public information desk at any City of Santa Clara public library.
