WE REMEMBER

THE PEOPLES TEMPLE

ABOUT

New Community Leadership Foundation (NCLF) works to empower and uplift residents of Black and other disenfranchised neighborhoods across San Francisco, California. Our volunteer-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization fights for economic justice while reclaiming land taken from San Francisco’s Black community through racist land-use policies and practices. We also organize programs and activities designed to strengthen minority communities by celebrating our unique histories and cultural heritage. Our programs and services work collaboratively with public and private sector organizations to create bold initiatives promoting economic and racial justice. Our ultimate goal is to give every San Francisco resident a fair chance at a high standard of living and an equal chance to live the American dream in our great city.

 

One of our programs in Historic Preservation, which includes working to preserve and protect historical landmarks important to San Francisco’s minority communities. As part of this work, we educate the community about the rich legacy, heritage, and contributions of Black people in San Francisco by curating walking tours and public ceremonies and promoting existing and new commemorative plaques, historic markers, and public monuments. 

 

The yearly Peoples Temple Commemoration is our primary project of Historic Preservation in the City and County of San Francisco.

ARLANDER (RONNIE) COLE 

Arlander Cole, also known as Ronnie is an experienced 3-D upscale artist and community activist born and raised in the city of San Francisco. Driven by his desire to change the community-identified needs, Ronnie takes pride in his artwork for its healing and inspirational effect, which has spanned over 69 years. Over 3 years ago it was him who dreamt of a public memorial to acknowledge the lost community members due to the People’s Temple tragedy and worked tirelessly alongside NCLF and SF Beautiful to make this the yearly commemorations and memorial a reality. The importance of the yearly commemoration to Ronnie is the precedent that this intentional remembrance sets for the continuous struggle to obtain reparations for San Francisco’s Black community and ultimately for all Black communities. The opportunity to work on an initiative dear to him has allowed Ronnie to be reticulated into San Francisco Politics and work alongside many young people in efforts to foster organizational unity than transcends generations.
