On behalf of the members and friends of the national organization of Blacks In Government (BIG), I would like to welcome you to the "Independence Chapter" Website. This website is intended to be a multi purpose network that will provide up to date information that is of particular interest to persons of color who are employed in city, state, or federal government.
Although BIG's major emphasis in past years has been directed primarily toward
African-Americans employed in the federal sector , we feel that a
much broader vision is called for. In these changing times, the people of
color must begin to pool their vast talents and resources in order to
effectively combat the forces in our society which seek to wipe away many of the
employment gains that have been realized within the last three decades.
