Why We Exist
Black men and women have suffered from the weapons of white supremacy more than any other racial group on Earth. We represent the highest casualty rates from preventable physical illnesses like AIDS, diabetes, and cancer. We are three times more likely to be poor, 5 times more likely to have abortions, and 21 times more likely to be shot and killed by police than whites. 1 in 3 of our men will endure the horrors of prison.
United Black America stands on the front line against the weapons of white supremacy. Our project teams turn Black consumers into producers by creating Black enterprises and financial literacy programs. We disrupt mis-education within our communities with work study groups and curricula for developing knowledge of self. We aggressively fight for prison reform and community oversight committees to regulate law enforcement. Using lobbyists, political participation drives, and voter blocs, we advance the demands of our people as a unified political body.
