Below is a list of currently identified projects. These recognize that we ought not simply complain while waiting on national leaders to resolve the problems but we ought to also work to resolve them devising solutions compatible with what national leaders do adjusting as the need arises. Truth is most blacks are doing well in America even many who talk like they are not. Yet, those doing well ought to be concerned about being his brother's keeper so as to aid in their quality of life enhancement. But in the end it is a personal choice to just complain or to also act.

A number of these projects deal with racial disparities; in particular with respect to black and white lives due to a variety of factors. However, solutions for the reduction/elimination of racial disparity will benefit people of all races (black, white, other); indeed, all lives matter. For example, the 2017 poverty rate for whites and blacks was 15.1% and 32.7% respectively showing black poverty rate doubles that of whites. Focused efforts to discover and resolve the real causes and short-term/long-term effect of poverty disparity would implement solution elements available to all racial groups and therefore reduce the poverty rate for all as the goal is improved quality of life for all regardless of race and gender, etc.

This initiative is not about blaming anyone person or any one race of people or other groups for people of all races and groups have shortcomings and inappropriate behaviour regarding these matters. All truth must rise!
