Who We Are

The UNRacialize Project is a group of like-minded people of all ages, genders, social and economic backgrounds who believe that God has given us the right to live, love and make our own choices. We are advocates of growth. We are change makers whose work embodies the spirit of unity, taking shape across technology, media and legislation. In its totality, The UNRacialize Project consists of Engage Small 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.



The UNRacialize leadership team together has more than 100 years of experience providing quality care and advocacy in the black community and beyond. With a goal to show the love of Christ in action, UNR leaders provide hands-on care and support to black men and their families.

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.
