In a democracy, there is power in numbers and unity. For this reason, strong and vibrant membership is critical for the National Black Parents Association to deliver the services we promise. In short, we need you. Meanwhile, you need us too, fighting on the front lines to make life better for you and your children. So, let us work together to make the American dream attainable and sustainable for all Americans regardless of race or skin color.
There are enormous issues facing African American children (education, poverty, gang violence, police brutality, etc.), and there is no time to waste with inactivity. We must ACT NOW! Imagine what great black leaders from the past would say about our need to organize and unite. For example, fifty years ago, Dr. King spoke of the “fierce urgency of now.” And approximately 100 years ago, Frederick Douglass referred to the need for action with these powerful words:
“Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.”
