BLCK Foundation’s mission is bring awareness to issues plaguing communities of color and to create innovative mechanisms through which communities of color can enhance their voice locally and nationally for positive changes.  Though the “wear your support” campaign which is based on the red and black bi-directional “#black lives matter” ribbon, wristband and apparel products, BLCK brings awareness to a worldwide crises facing people of color.  The campaign also serve as a fund-raising mechanism for this modern civil rights movement for justice. Similar to the ribbons utilized by the national breast cancer foundation and HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns, as well as the wristband utilized by the Livestrong Foundation, BLCK’s “wear your support campaign” is a reminder of the struggle and a statement to others that black lives matter!!!!!!! 

 

In 2016 BLCK Foundation has launched the “BLCK Awareness Town Hall Tour” with the mission to engage communities of color in the public decisions that impact their lives. Through BLCK Awareness town halls, BLCK is focused on creating opportunities for communities of color to impact decisions and to engage public officials into make informed, lasting decisions with regards to: (1) education equality, (2) public safety (3) community policing, (4) educational equality and (5) economic opportunities in communities of color. The BLCK Foundation is developing and facilitating deliberative methods such as the 21st century town hall meeting format, which enables facilitated discussion for 500 to 5,000 participants. This is a renewal of the essence of true democracy through a national infrastructure for democratic liberation and grassroots engagement.   BLCK is positioning itself to galvanize social, political and religious organization into a radical black spiritual movement for justice.


“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.”
