Education

The African American achievement gap makes the path the college less likely in underserved communities.

Employment

Basic jobs in underserved communities don’t ladder up to prosperous careers.

Empowerment

Businesses by and for people in the community aren’t being created as often as needed.

Advocacy

Communities become underserved when the rights of its citizens aren’t upheld and respected.
