Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is a holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865 announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas, and more generally the emancipation of African-American slaves throughout the Confederate South. It has today grown into over 200 American celebrations.
#BlackFolksPlan 2017 Convention Juneteenth June 16th -19th 2017
The #BlackFolksPlan 2017 Convention (location TBA) is focused on the needs of the 47M American Citizens who have an African history and will be a series of local, regional and state conventions held starting from MLK Day of Service in 2017, January 14th. We draw on the history of the Colored Conventions Movement, which focused on the needs of the African people, free and slave in the United States of America.
Unlike the Pan-Africanist ideals that emerged in the late nineteenth century in response to European colonization and exploitation of the African continent, we are concentrated in this convention on the United States of America. We explore the relationship with Africa from a American perspective of African Nations and the African Union as a strategic partnership in which African American play a decisive role as American Citizens. We are looking for the WIN WIN Situation here, one that enriches Africans as we enrich Americans who have a African history.
We have five main tracks –
Growing a Million Black Businesses
Our goal is have 1M black owned business with paid employees by 2020.
Black owned businesses in the United States increased 34.5% between 2007 and 2012 totaling 2.6 million Black firms. More than 95% of these businesses are mostly sole proprietorship or partnerships which have no paid employees. About 4 in 10 black-owned businesses (1.1 Million) in 2012 operated in the health care, social assistance; and other services such as repair, maintenance, personal and laundry services sectors. Of the 2.6 million black-owned businesses in 2012, 109,137 had paid employees, an increase of 2.2 percent from 2007. These businesses employed 975,052 people, an increase of 5.9 percent; their payrolls totaled $27.7 billion, an increase of 15.9 percent (not adjusted for inflation).
We believe that economic development begets social enlightenment and will reduce crime as more of the Black community is making payroll and is part of the American business community.
One of our main divergent strategies is to run prisons where we will have rehabilitation programs that include a broad range of educational opportunities.
Domestic Public Private Partnerships
Domestic Public Private Partnerships based on the Community Benefit Agreements that Friends of the African Union Affiliate Friends of the African Union Chamber of Commerce a National Community Reinvestment Coalition Member signed on November 18th 2016 a $30B billion dollar 5th Third Bank Community Benefit Agreement (CBA) and as a NCRC member will participate in the implementation of the $16.5B KeyBank CBA and the $16.1B Huntington Bankshare CBA in the context of the next steps as we execute the #BlackFolksPlan for American Citizens that will create over 300 regional Community Reinvestment Coalitions based on the work of FAU Cincinnati .
The #BlackFolksPlan is using ISO 26000 as a management and relationship guide. ISO 26000 is the International Standards Organization Guidance to Social Responsibility. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an international standard-setting body composed of representatives from various national standards organizations. Founded on 23 February 1947, the organization promotes worldwide proprietary, industrial and commercial standards. ISO 26000 is the international standard developed to help organizations effectively assess and address those social responsibilities that are relevant and significant to their mission and vision; operations and processes; customers, employees, communities, and other stakeholders; and environmental impact.
Using ISO 26000:2010 we intended to assist organizations in contributing to sustainable development for the 40 million Americans who are descendants of American African Slavery. Our purpose is intended to encourage them to go beyond legal compliance, recognizing that compliance with law is a fundamental duty of any organization and an essential part of their social responsibility as well as access to a market that earned $1.2 Trillion Dollars in 2015. We use it to promote common understanding in the field of social responsibility, and to complement other instruments and initiatives for social responsibility to create a win win situation as a public private partnership based on the Cincinnati model in the development of the Greater Cincinnati Community Reinvestment Coalition
A US Federal Government Public Private Partnership
A US Federal Government Public Private Partnership (P3) that by executive action by the President of a $5T USD Quantitative Easing based debt purchasing program (The Daniels IDIQ) as a solution for the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of African slavery in the United States of America between 1787 and 1865 and its progenitors the 13 American colonies between 1619 and 1787 its effects subsequently de jure and de facto of racial and economic discrimination on the descendant Americans of America’s African slavery and address the damage incurred by past and current federal government racism against freed African Slaves in the United States from 1865 to 1867 and African Americans from 1867 to 2014 that will be a stimulus to the American Economy that
(1) is judicious;
(2) answers under the control of our Federal Executive Branch the statements set forth in the interagency response set forth by the US State Department to the United Nations Universal Periodic Review of the United States of America in 2015 that said Civil Rights, Ethnic, and Racial Discrimination is the number one human rights problem in the United States of America;
(3) draws on already established Executive authority and market infrastructure;
(4) helps the other Americans through indirect associations by creation of supportive ancillary jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities thereby supporting the advancement of the American people as a whole; and
(5) is just adequate enough to implement real changes that reverse long-standing conditions caused by systemic de jure and de facto racial and economic discrimination, as documented in depth elsewhere and provides a means from 2016 to 2116 to address these issues with a 100 year capital trust to do so.
African Public Private Partnerships
African Public Private Partnerships – We are not only looking to create with African Nations Public Private Partnerships but with the African Union we look to create a 100 yer American Driven $3T P3 whose main goals is buy all of Africa’s Slaves out of Slavery and restart their lives while implementing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for the people of Africa as we erase the digital divide for them.
