The American Conscience Out Reach Fund
Organized by: Rodney Davis
I started "The American Conscience Online Magazine" to tackle the tough issues of Race and Gender bias within America. As the grandson of a man who was lynched, I am aware that these issues, if left attended, could lead to more serious actions/consequences within and for our society. This plat form was started before the Baltimore riots, but after Ferguson, in March 2015. It was then that I saw a real need to reach out and find solutions to our problem. The first step is to reach as many people as is possible to raise awareness of these issues. To date, my website has increased in viewership 1,072 page views per day (06/01/2015) and growing daily. However, this pace of growth is not adequate to reach the masses, where the impact would be greatest. It is intended that the site, will become the primary funding source for future activities: webinars, Printed materials, community workshops, and non partisan political advocacy/lobbing on the issues. The issues covered so far within the site are: Race relations , digging deeper into the how and why we do what we do, without judgement, but with honesty; Gender equality issues, including pay equity and social inequality; Sexual orientation bias; without hostility and bias; and, youth issues as well, including teen suicides and pregnancy. Politicians will listen, but only to a well organized operations. In order to build the type of broad based social coalition that required, will take educating, organizing and lobby. However, before that, unfortunately, money will be required. The 2016 election season is here, and now is the time to become fully operational. The goal is to impact the election, both primary and general, and bring some solutions forward that we can get into an omnibus social bill. Not looking for any type of law that is a spreading of wealth, but a law that will elevate disadvantage group to a parity with others within our society. Democrats, republicans and Independents are all needed for this cause, again, without partisan biases.
