Mission

The issue that our organization is dedicated to addressing is the societal inconsistencies which plague and distort the natural evolutionary growth required to become an effective and vibrant member of a properly functioning society. In 1832 Senator Henry Barry set forth this analysis of our condition in his abolitionist speech to the Virginia House of Delegates. “We have as far as possible closed every avenue by which light might enter their minds (slaves.) We have only to go one step further, to extinguish the capacity to see the light and our work would be completed. They would then be on the level of the beast of the field and we should be safe.” Our belief that nature is self-sufficient in restoring humanity to proper function if we can but unlock its tools directs our efforts

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

SQUARE ONE PROJECT (DEMOCRACY 101 - HANDS-ON CIVICS PRACTICUM)

The general lack of knowledge as to what exactly Democracy is and how it works has ultimately stymied the natural expressions of it in the community of the African American. Even though they understand that the idea of democracy is good, their daily experiences rarely bare any resemblance to the nobility of that concept. The community of the African-American continuing inability to activate inalienable freedoms guaranteed by the Creator of life due to this lack of knowledge causes most to lose hope. Well is it said "my people perish for lack of knowledge"... This program is designed to change that by eliminating the contradictory mental constructs to freedom, as it were, ..“abolishing the forms to which they are all too well accustomed” i.e. helplessness, ignorance and anger. Teaching them how to extract or 'tease out' both the divine and natural principles of liberation as set forth in the Declaration of Independence. "WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS.." Breathing life into them through their ownership of and responsibility to the extremely difficult task of converting a principle from its state of 'concept' to the implementation of its physical form (the word became flesh.) Enabling them to build with their own hands new guards which insure the preciousness of life, health, happiness and safety for themselves, their families and respective communities.

The process of evolution (TSSOS) bka "the times that try men’s souls", are governed by an unfailing system of purpose and design. A preparation for entering into the next level of purpose and life, and to understand the laws that govern this existence. Just as a baby suffers through the process of teething in order to survive the next level of it eventual evolutionary growth so do the trials and challenges of life prepare us to successfully enter and navigate the myriad challenges that life demands without being consumed by them.
