Urban Renaissance is the nonprofit side of the Urban Blueprint. The strategies of Urban Renaissance are designed to educate, edify, strengthen and protect our children. The welfare of our children is the ultimate purpose of Urban Renaissance.
To Fight White Supremacy and End Discrimination.
To be the Pre-Eminent Nonprofit in America in terms of Life Preservation, Educational Renaissance, Business Infrastructure and Human Rights for Black America.
To assist the Urban Blueprint in ending White Supremecy.
Virtually all of our urban high schools have 30, 40 and even 50% of our youth infected with HIV/AIDS, Herpes, HPV and other STDs, and/or are pregnant.
Nearly half (48%) of Black teen girls get pregnant at least once before age 20—nearly twice the national average. Pregnancy is the #1 reason girls drop out of school. Many girls who are expecting, and those who are already mothers face discrimination by school administrators, teachers, and students.
An alarming 48% of African-American girls ages 14-19 have a sexually transmitted disease, while 88% of girls with HIV are Black. Of HIV diagnoses among 13 to 19-year-olds, almost 70% are to Black teens.
No fewer than 300,000 minorities have gone missing since 2010, one-half of whom were Black and one-half of that number were Black women, according to the Atlanta Black Star.
One in five kids has been propositioned for cybersex. 21% of teens say they have looked at something on the internet that they wouldn’t want their parents to know. The largest consumer of internet pornography is the 12-17 age group. For every ten men in church, five are struggling with Pornography, and 47.78% of families said pornography is a problem in their homes.
According to recent national research conducted by the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, 10.5 percent of all high school-age girls have been sexually assaulted. For every African-American woman that reports her rape, at least 15 African-American women do not report theirs. Sixty percent of Black girls have experienced sexual abuse at the hands of Black men before reaching the age of 18, according to an ongoing study conducted by Black Women’s Blueprint.
Strategies & Programs of Urban Renaissance
1. The Date B4 the Prom
The Date B4 the Prom is a national speaking tour that will take place in cities across America. Our target audience is high school girls, grades 9-12, with speaking dates to be held at churches and schools in the visited cities. We will employ direct and insightful strategies to help our daughters with the many problems they face. Many are in need. They are all in danger. They need us to be there for them and we will. We want to save them all!
The Date B4 the Prom will utilize a number of approaches to get the job done. We will have a website, a blog and hotline named The Love Our Youth Hotline that has a 1-800 all-in number. Looking ahead, there are plans for a positive-spin reality show, as well as an entrepreneurial venture for our daughters.
And finally, we intend to get national legislation passed called The K.I.P. Human Initiative. The vast majority of Black high schools have STD infection rates in the 30%, 40% and 50%. We are talking about HIV/AIDS, Herpes and HPV, among the other STDs. The K.I.P. Initiative is where every high school student voluntary gets tested for all STDs.
The information is then made known to the student body and parents, while keeping individual anonymity in place. Think it can’t be done? For starters, the testing will be voluntary. And each school will have psychologists on hand. We already have a mandatory vaccination program in place, and recently it has come to light that this is still yet another way in which The Destroyer does us harm. Have you heard of the link between Black boys, autism and the MMR vaccine? It’s quite a terrible predicament, and it’s real!
We will only be free when we stop letting tell us what we have to do even though it is not to our advantage, and begin doing what we need to do, for ourselves, which will entirely be to our benefit.
2. Blueprint 99
The Grand Plan that will lead us to the effective end of discrimination in America. It houses The Ten Million Letter Delivery as well as The American Investment Act. Blueprint 99 will reintroduce Black America to the entire world.
3. Compassion Suites
This is the strategy that will address the problems with the American Foster Care System, the system that quickly and unapologetically takes our children from their homes and places them in a system chock full of sexual assault, pharmaceutical drugs and abuse. We must put an immediate end to the inhumane drugging of our children. We must be there for them.
4. The American Prisoner Society (T.A.P.S.)
An organization that fights against the proliferation of the prison industrial complex and the wrongs of the Criminal Justice System. We will fight against profiling, harassment, gang banging, three strike rules, ‘consent’ searches, and systemic racism. We will fight for their voting rights, Truth in Sentencing, keeping families together and more.
5. City Arts & Entertainment
Television specials, stage plays, PSAs for Urban America and school bus motivational signage for all schools. We will convey uplifting and educational messages and programming to our elementary kids that are sure to help shape positive psyches and develop healthy morale in our children.
6. Africa at Heart
An organization that connects us with people of African descent all around the world. We will connect with Black people in Africa, Australia, Brazil, Haiti, Jamaica, Puerto Rico and where ever else our people may be. This is something that is long overdue, and an event that we should all look forward to.
