The Capital B Campaign is a multi-faceted effort to elevate the image of, as well as understanding, dignity, and respect for Black people in the U.S. broadly and, in San Diego County, specifically. The ultimate desired outcome is inclusion and equity in both policy and practice tangibly resulting in an improved quality of life for Black persons of African descent in San Diego.
