Organized by: Lisa Henry

BLACK MEN MATTER is a project born from the deep need and desire to uplift, support and advocate for Black Men, in a society that consistently degrades and demoralizes their existence through negative media images, incarceration, and institutional racism.

Everyone deserves to have a full, positive, HUMAN experience. Black Men are no less deserving of this basic experience.

Money raised from this campaign will go towards the creation of a 501 (c) 3, completion of a comprehensive website, documentary equipment and contractual operation costs. Major portion of funds raised will go towards educational grants and micro-grants for Black Men starting small businesses in Queens, New York; Kansas City, Missouri; Detroit, Michigan; Chicago, Illinois; and Oakland, California.

When Black Men are supported and uplifted, entire families and communities are healthier, happier and stronger. BLACK MEN MATTER, and through education, legislation, entrepreneurship and the arts, our goal is to create more positive, uplifting dialogs, programs, societal awareness, legislation, and institutional support concerning Black Men.

We are looking for 20,000 people to give just $20 to begin a new, positive movement to strengthen the lives of Black Men in America, and worldwide. BLACK MEN MATTER. They matter to families. They matter to communities. They matter to the WORLD.

Please give your financial support to this worthwhile project.
