WHY DONATE TO OUR CAUSE ?
The criminalization, together with negative stereotypes of black skin tone individuals in the societal portrayal of blackness in education, literature, fiction, media, entertainment, etc., are the sown seeds of racial biases. This subconscious outlook creates mental conditioning, producing a psychological impact that creates implicit biases and the lack of placing-importance on persons-of-color. To lessen these neurobiological effects on the behavior of us all is to work at the very core.
Bringing awareness alone to racial discrimination is insufficient to tackle racial inequities. It is more or less like saying to an addict that they are addicts. In our implicit biased states, the awareness alone is inadequate to provide the change needed to combat racist acts' proclivity. The neural basis of race points to a need for a more deliberate action to combat racial inequities.
STRATEGIC PLAN FRAME
Work with Authors partner with publishers, and educators, to promote a broader spectrum in the representation of persons-of-color via images and textbook development for courses and literature.
Engage with Institutions at the local level on collective efforts to engage in solution-oriented work that will address the root-cause process towards reversing racial inequities.
Serve as an in-house resource and support for persons of color on race-related concerns.
Provide community workshops to address the status quo that permeates conformity to racial identity expressions and the unlearning of social norms that perpetuate hate, including self-hate.
Have candid conversation series geared towards norms embedded into harmful stereotypes.
Introduce activities in the community, such as cultural expression showcases to increase the awareness of the varied racial identities.
