Over a million African American businesses will have access to $100B in capital for a massive program of employment based on the FAU’s The New American Rights of Passage program where 100,000 of them will be strategic partners like the original 1,000 members of the FAU Chamber of Commerce (who would pay $1,000 membership fee to establish the partnership with us by December 24th 2016) and project ready programs as part of the African American Rebuild America and Make America Great 2030 Program with 59 public private partnerships like that of the in formation FAU Ohio Community Reinvestment Coalition in partnerships with state governments drawn from $150B of this section of the #BlackFolksPlan proposal is to meet the needs of the African American Community by focused investment in business lending according to SBA standards through bank holding partnerships derived from community benefit agreements like those enacted in Ohio and SEC defined crowd-source funding and $100B for the New American Rites of Passage program for men that focuses on African-American fathers who according to a Pew Research Center report released in 2016, 11 percent of U.S. children lived apart from their fathers in 1960 compared with 27 percent in 2010. The study also shows that 44 percent of African-American fathers today live apart from their children, compared with 21 percent of white fathers.


The New American Rights of Passage is focused on seven milestones:

  • Getting a Healthy Start and Entering School Ready to Learn
    All children should have a healthy start and enter school ready – cognitively, physically, socially, and emotionally.
  • Reading at Grade Level by Third Grade
    All children should be reading at grade level by age 8 – the age at which reading to learn becomes essential.
  • Graduating from High School Ready for College and Career
    All youth should receive a quality high school education and graduate with the skills and tools needed to advance to postsecondary education or training.
  • Completing Postsecondary Education or Training
    Every American should have the option to attend postsecondary education and receive the education and training needed for the quality jobs of today and tomorrow.
  • Successfully Entering the Workforce
    Anyone who wants a job should be able to get a job that allows them to support themselves and their families.
  • Keeping Kids on Track and Giving Them Second Chances
    All youth and young adults should be safe from violent crime; and individuals who are confined should receive the education, training, and treatment they need for a second chance.

Over a 300 coalitions covering 47 million African Americans will have access to $100B in capital for a massive program of employment based on the FAU’s PROPOSED Presidential Presidential Memorandum called the New American Rights of Passage program:
