Our stated purpose is to promote and support programs, initiatives, and events that address the needs of African-Americans youth. Our vision is to leverage social media to promote social awareness and social responsibility. We believe that we can create a place where information can be shared, issues discussed, and programs promoted.
Sounds good but what does this really mean?
The Marketplace is a working website, which means we expect you to work! Answer polls, facilitate forum discussions, and send pictures and videos. Tell us about your programs and events. We can make this a movement devoted to social issues. It’s up to us.
I have committed the Marketplace to focus on a few key topics. These are the ones that I'm most passionate about:
- The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and organizations with similar agendas
- Voter's rights
- Stop, Question, and Frisk
- Affirmative Action
I invite you to share with us topics that are important to you.
Thank you again for your continued support as we move towards our next milestone.
