Who We Are

 

The UNRacialize Project is an independent relationship initiative. We are like-minded global ministry partners of all ages, genders, social and economic backgrounds...change makers whose work takes shape across technology, media and legislation. We advocate for equal treatment and unobstructed opportunity under the law and we're intentional in our approach to racial unity and love.

 

In its totality, The UNRacialize Project consists of Engage Smart Groups and Community, The Gathering Weekend Event, The Checkpoint Podcast, UNRacialize Media, UNR Technology and UNR Legislative Reform. These together create an unrestrained global movement forward.

 

The UNRacialize Project has a primary goal to improve the quality of life for black men and their families by closing the racial divide and unracializing our systems.

What We Believe

 

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

― Margaret Mead

 

Our belief that every person has the right to believe as they choose to believe is the foundation of The UNRacialize Project. In this sense, we do not seek to end racism, but to “unracialize” our systems of government, finance, education and commerce.

  • We believe that only God can legislate hearts.

  • We believe that it is not enough to simply declare a man free, he must be allowed to live in this world unobstructed.

  • We believe that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Founder's Message

 

Racism is what the world is talking about right now.  Most are in agreement that black men struggle against excessive brutality and the black community as a whole has long been denied equal participation in society. 

I’m glad that many are listening and beginning to understand what black people have endured for so long.  And whether it’s just a knee-jerk reaction or a true awakening, there is definitely a shift in tone. Our world is on the cusp of the greatest era of transformation that humanity has ever experienced.

The way the world responds to black men will change, either because we proactively define our future, or because it has been shaped and defined for us by external forces around us. Somehow waiting to see what happens is not at a viable option for me or for the millions of black men still at risk.  Now is the time to build new strategies, embrace possibility, fund transformation initiatives and give black men for fair, equitable participation. 

When history looks back on these days and at the collective deaths of Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Mike Brown, Alton Sterling, Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd and others on a still growing list of lost potential, it must be taught as the turning point. It must be said that the opportunity presented itself for society to evolve beyond color, and we took it!
