what we care about
WHY WE CARE: Our Health Matters
Blacks die from every chronic disease at a higher rate than any other ethnic group.
WHY WE CARE: Our Wealth Matters
For every dollar the median white household has, the median Black household has 10 cents.
WHY WE CARE: Our (Consistent) Vote Matters
Blacks votes when they believe interests are being met, and don’t vote as a protest to inequalities embedded in the political process.
innovation to transformation
With strategic, innovative, transformational programs, we engage all generations to provide an educational experience that leaves community members informed, empowered, and motivated.
poverty is bad for your health
Poverty is bad for health. People living in poverty are more likely to struggle to afford nutritious food, lack access to health care, or be overworked or stressed. 1
An increase in wealth will definitely provide the Black community with the transformational change necessary to create a sustainable, higher quality of life.
Blacks have historically been denied access to higher-paying jobs, quality education (for the skill set needed for those jobs), which means they are more likely to be adversely affected by social determinants of health and lifestyle that prevent them from achieving a higher quality of life.
OUR IMPACT TO DATE
We stay in the lab, so to speak. This means we are constantly finding ways to push ourselves to engage our community and create transformational change. Take a peek to the right to see where we spend our time.
