PLATFORM PLANKS  

 

1. Facilitate targeted economic development of our indigenous assets. (i.e. Community finances, real estate, human resources, etc.)

2. Help individuals, community based groups and organizations understand the difference between electoral political activity and indigenous political activity.

3. Mobilize political capital in support of Project 5000 real estate acquisition, financial literacy programs, and job creation initiatives that will spur indigenous community business development.

4. Establish our body politic within designated political districts and exercise control within the district through organized voting blocks.

5. Change the culture and nature of police-resident relationships in minority communities.

6. Use political capital and leverage to gain support from State and local governments for community based and organized strategic plan for the productive re-entry of ex-offenders to the community.

7. Control and support indigenous means of security for residents of the community. Thereby reducing the need for "over" policing and profiling by federal, state, and local forces.

8. Address the poverty dynamic that drives our youth into conflicts and violent behavior that results in lives lost; either physically or to the prison industrial complex, through business creation and job development.

9. Create business and workforce development through busyman initiative that organizes skill craftsmen to lead property restoration efforts of Project 5,000 aquisitions while employing and training local community residents as primary participants in rebuilding our distressed communities. Through the project 5,000 initiative work force participants and residents of the broader community will be engaged in credit development and financial planning services in order to prepare them to qualify for home ownership and become real stakeholders in their community.

10. Provide a forum for residents to have an intelligent and forward thinking discussion about the issues and direction of their own community.
