PhxSoul.com is hosting a Real Estate/Homebuying Forum for Valley residents WHO ARE INTERESTED in moving to South Phoenix on Thursday, May 17 from 6-8 PM at 602 East Siesta Dr, Phoenix, AZ 85042.
Why are we hosting this forum?
Back in February 2018, we published a column encouraging the Black community to strongly consider moving back to South Phoenix. That column received an EXTREMELY STRONG response from the community!
Bottom line, the South Mountain district has been our historical home for many decades. If you lived in the Valley before the early 2000s, you knew that South Phoenix was the place where you could easily find the Black community. We've owned many businesses, hosted numerous community events… and had a lock on political offices that came from our area (City Council, Arizona state legislature, school board, etc).
Over the past two decades, a noticeable segment of the Black population has migrated away from South Phoenix. Also, many Black transplants who come out here for jobs or other reasons seem to land in the Phoenix suburbs without consider South Phoenix.
This shift has weakened our unity, our political power and our overall visibility in the Valley of the Sun.
PhxSoul.com wants to help educate local Black residents on the homebuying and land ownership opportunities that are available in the South Mountain District.
We have organized a team of realtors who will give presentations and we will have native/long-time neighbors who will discuss the benefits of living in South Phoenix.
We want to see South Phoenix become the concentrated home for the Black community so we can become more unified, become better neighbors, support our businesses, invest in our children's educational progress and regain our political strength! «Black Wall Street» can rise in South Phoenix if we put in the work!
But first, we believe you must live here to make this vision become a reality!
We'll see you on May 17! This event is free to the public.
