Our mission

“Our mission is to empower the African American community by increasing access to trustworthy health and financial education, resources, and services, to promote equitable health and wealth outcomes.”

MEETING THE COMMUNITY WHERE THEY LIVE, WORK, AND PLAY.

With strategic,  innovative, transformational programs, we engage all generations to provide an educational experience that leaves community members informed, empowered, and motivated.

   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.
