POP Chairman Larry Hamm and Freeholder President Britnee Timberlake Join ChangeMakers to discuss April 8th One United March against Trump's Direction


EAST ORANGE, NJ - Both Chairman Hamm and Freeholder Timberlake will join the ChangeMakers Radio Show this Saturday at 10:00 am for what promises to be a very exciting show. They will talk about their involvement in planning and supporting the April 8th United March Against President Trump’s policies and general direction for the country.

People’s Organization for Progress (POP) Chairman Mr. Lawrence Hamm has been a relentless advocate for African-American people and the cause of human rights for more than 40 years. The struggle for quality education, employment opportunities, access to health care and against racial profiling, and police brutality continues through the efforts of its Chairman and the activism of the organization's members.

President Timberlake is the youngest Freeholder elected in the state of New Jersey and the only current sitting African-American female president. Her commitment to public service helps positively transform the lives of people in and outside of Essex County. As President, she has targeted and addressed several key issues affecting her fellow citizens including home ownership assistance, small business financing, foreclosures, immigration, and public safety. Her accomplishments resonate through her continuous work in discovering ways to improve the county she calls home.
