Suits in Solidarity members celebrating their end of year meeting with a holiday reception with City Council President Herb Wesson, Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas and Kerman Maddox, Co-Founder Suits in Solidarity.

Suits in Solidarity was founded by Supervisor Mark Ridley Thomas and Kerman Maddox in response to the national epidemic of unarmed African American Men killed by law enforcement officials. Originally, we were trying to get the broader media to understand the issue of police misconduct in the African American Community was widespread and affected African American Men no matter their age or Socio Economic status. Going forward, the goals of Suits in Solidarity are criminal justice reform, promote economic growth of African American owned businesses, promote youth Academic Achievement and contribute in ways to empower the African American community.
