The Community Action League (TCAL) is a community organization that helps low income communities in the Antelope Valley act to fight for their civil rights. Through individual meetings, door knocking, public meetings, and public policy advocacy, TCAL inspires the AV community into action in order to address the problems affecting low income families. We have addressed issues ranging from: section 8 recipient attacks, racial profiling by police and the incessant attacks against our youth in Criminal Justice and Educational system.

I have to praise a gentleman named Pharaoh Mitchell of TCAL who steered a lawsuits against the cities of Palmdale and Lancaster, California for discrimination in how Section 8 recipients were being handled by law enforcement. That lawsuit opened PANDORA'S BOX. Sometimes people stand with you; sometimes people stand against you out of jealousy and wanting you to fail. But I tell people like Mitchell that God always stands with you so to heck with everyone else. Do what you believe God has called you to do, KEEP IT REAL, and make your contribution to your community and to our youth.


Wow I just had a great eye opening experience while talking with Pharaoh Mitchell. His advice was on hit. He made me see myself in a whole new light. I know that when I link up with his organization I should be equip with a tool-chest for success!! Nice chatting with you Pharaoh and thanks again....

Let's have a BIG shout out to our own Pharaoh Mitchell on this holiday for all his ideas, vision, work, mentoring, efforts and endurance in making the AV and the whole darn world a better place for ALL us critters on this planet. His "hands on always" benefits us in ways he doesn't always see. Your work does make a difference, Pharaoh. Don't give up on us!


I would like to thank T-CAL for all their help during an ordeal that happened on 12/16/10 that changed my life. I myself and my children have struggled dealing with being victims of harassment by the Housing Authority and the Sheriff's dept. T-CAL has been with us from the beginning helping us to fight for our rights as citizens in the Antelope Valley. We were glad to know we had the support of the community in our flight against injustice. T-CAL helped me to remain strong for my children and although my nightmare is not over, I feel relief in what has been accomplished. We now must continue to fight and show that we will not lye down when it comes to injustice but rise together as one. Thank You.

Denetha Estell

You keep doing what you're doing Pharaoh. Continue to be the voice that we need to help our people.

Hansley Kay

Never apologize for being YOU and being the benevolent spirit that you are. Giving back sees no color only Grace. You are a ROCK STAR!

Vernita Scott-Flanton

Like I always say about you Pharaoh Mitchell, if we only had a million more just like you!!

Jeannie Stroup

I just want to thank you for the superb marketing you did on behalf of Heights of Greatness Leadership Institute. The Business Leadership and Public Speaking flyers were of supreme quality. Your eagle focused eye zoned in on exactly what we wanted to offer our targeted audience, and the words you used on the flyer brought more attention to our seminars than we had anticipated. The Prosperity Network will serve as our marketing resource from now on. Again, thank you for your excellent work. I will refer your extreme professional and marketing services to all of my business associates. Keep up the great work.

V. Jesse Smith, President, Heights of Greatness Leadership Institute

As well as you know there's a lot of fakes out there & you my friend aren't one of the fakes. His HEART is BIG!!! There ain't nobody gonna take that from him!!! He's often burning the candle at both ends. A lot of work with very minimal praise. Pharaoh... Keep your head up Brotha. When you get all f.......d up in the head & tired. Go look at those smiles you bring on all those ppl you have helped out. And be careful of all those hugs so that they don't squeeze a brotha to death!!! 🙂
Pharaoh... Stay strong your peeps need you!!!


You are one in a million. God bless you.
