In order for Black people—people of African descent to move forward, we must understand the need for a collective purpose. We are unified as one body, one people, and one spirit. As we move forward, our collective consciousness, epistemology and will, must align itself in order to reconstruct our destiny. This Black Agenda is birthed out of the necessity of a powerful people to reclaim its freedom from the oppression of those who wish to do us harm. With one voice we say no more—as we move onward in the struggle, we are on the cusp of a great victory.
We must come together to Educate, Organize and Mobilize. There is legislation on the table and laws have been passed to help our communities; we must EDUCATE our people about their existence. There are organizations and individuals working on the same issues nationwide, yet they are disconnected, we must ORGANIZE them around legislation to push their agenda. There are individuals in our community that feel the need to be part of the solution, but they don’t know how, when or where; we must MOBILIZE these warriors after we educate and organize them. We must never again allow anyone to suggest, that a people suffering the way we have suffered, don’t have an agenda ! What we lack, is a unified movement, and the infrastructure to push the agenda!
NBAC Chicago will use a national network, digital media, social media, and nationally coordinated direct action, to push our representatives to make and enforce laws, which advance our communities nationwide.
