A Father To The Fatherless Initiative
This initiative was created to address issues in which deals with African American males ages 4 years old through 18 years old who grew up without a father in the home. Many of our males are missing the teachings of positive male figures and sometimes go in the wrong direction or path in order to attempt to find fatherhood in the street as a result of lack of fatherhood. This initiative is to become the intersection between fatherhood and a dead end. This initiative prevents low self esteem and lack of parenthood.

$5/$10. This will create annual wealth of over $1.9 billion. The union dues will be used to create the employment and hands-on training classes necessary for our members to start working with our engineers and community leaders for the redevelopment of our communities. This will start with Communication and Community Development training classes for our much needed lessons in the laws of the land, proper communication and representation of self, how to and what it means to invest, how money works in this land, how investing in one's own community and self, literally saves lives, communities and culture, for generations to come.
Classes, employment and training will then continue with rehabbing our neighborhood buildings into new educational and family academic sites, social safe-havens for all members, improving the look and handling of our current businesses, redeveloping the face of our residential living, creating a cleaning system that keeps our streets and grass areas safe and desirable, creating a security system that protects our members and teaches proper defense classes for all, utilizing the grass areas and residential backyards to collectively grow vegetable gardens for our local grocers. These gardens will be maintained by our much older elders along with our youth.
We will have our banks to refinance our loans and mortgages, so our land, profits and wealth will be handled through our communities. Our banks will create programs that eliminate bad credit history, and develop investing incentives. These incentives will help our businesses expand and keep their doors open for our young inquisitive minds. Annual incentive checks will be given to members based on a percentage of what they spend while patronizing our communities establishments, locally and worldwide. Calculations for this percentage will be via membership discount cards. Cards will be given after opening their membership accounts at our financial institutions and passing the initial Communication and Community Development classes.
African American Cultural Union Initiative
Union plan calls for our business leaders, community leaders and prominent to join with our financial institutes and form an umbrella of profit sharing: mutual investment funds comprised of all of our businesses, large and small, national and international. Our minimal investing should start with $20mth. There will be profit sharing checks, annually or semi-annually. This is separate from the annual percentage incentive checks. This will give our national community one independent powerful voice in the handling and safe upkeep of our members and communities.

Black Owned Beauty Supply Initiative
The hair care market is a huge revenue generator with black women being one if its largest consumers. The Oak Park, South Sacramento, Elk Grove area would benefit the most from this business. The money generated from opening one beauty supply store could be used to showcase black owned products, open more beauty supply stores and there are different businesses.

Children Holistic Health Initiative
For children with special health care needs, healthy eating may be more complicated and even more important. Also, being physically active may require more creativity for children with special needs or disabilities. Screen time is an important topic too as children may need to rely on a computer or television for part of their recreation due to the technical age we are in. Skipping meals or not getting enough of the right foods may affect medical status. Our goal is to share ideas and strategies that have worked for other families with children and youth with health care needs so you can adapt them for use with your own children and families. Wellness is about promoting well-being and preventing illness and injury.
We want all children to live longer in good health, and we want to reduce the gap between the most and least healthy among them. But chronic diseases like heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and depression, are on the rise. More people are being diagnosed, and at younger ages. If this trend continues, more people will live, more years with a chronic disease than ever before. Some people are more at risk of developing a chronic disease than others. Rates of many chronic diseases are higher among people with lower income, education, and social status.
The good news is that the majority of chronic diseases and about 50 percent of cancers can be prevented through a combination of physical activity, smoking-free living and environments, healthy eating, and avoidance of high risk drinking. New research suggests that effective stress management may also play a role in reducing chronic disease. Evidence shows that experiences and environments in childhood and adolescence influence health, development, learning and behaviour throughout life, and the risk of chronic disease in adulthood.
We can take steps to reduce these influences and raise healthy, happy children who are successful in school, work, and life. To give every child the best start in life, we need to take into account the needs and circumstances of families that experience greater challenges and have fewer opportunities to improve their health - generally speaking, these are low income families, rural residents and First Nations people.
Clean Survival Classes Initiative
These classes teach gardening skills, homemade natural water filters, mini solar panels, small quick homemade batteries that produce powerful lighting, fishing skills, and nature survival skills.
Community Call Out Initiative
Wesley Ray Elementary in Angie, Louisiana needs repairs. This has been a school in which needs repairs for years but no one has took out time to do repairs.

This call out is to bring the community together in regards to keeping the community clean and showing the youth how to have pride in their community.
Contracting Education & Certification Initiative

other businesses in our districts for maximum exposure to be awarded long term contracts. Establish a process where awarded businesses have options to invest or fund other initiatives.
Dual Citizenship Initiative
Dual Citizenship Opportunities.
Dual citizens have access the same set of opportunities in two countries. For example, as a dual citizen you will be allowed to vote in both countries. You are allowed to work in both countries, so you can choose the country with better wages or conditions. You will be allowed to own property and take advantage of two government services systems. You can choose where to go to school and pay a citizen's tuition.
Having dual citizenship gives you the chance to educate others about the culture and people of two different countries. Governments may like dual citizenship because it helps to promote a country's image and culture abroad. If you have two passports, you may have more access to the world. For example, a typical American citizen cannot travel to South Africa without applying for a costly visa -- if that American citizen also held Ghanian citizenship, she could simply present her Ghanian passport at the time of travel and go to South Africa without a visa.
Sense of Belonging.
Dual citizens may carry two passports and therefore feel reassured that they belong and are welcome in both countries. Though one country may be a homeland and the other a new home, dual citizens get to fully experience and embrace the ideals of both. Dual citizenship can strengthen loyalty -- both political and cultural -- to the second country by making dual citizens feel welcome and accepted.
Ease of Travel.
If you are a dual citizen, you enjoy the protection of two governments. When traveling, you can appeal to one or both governments' embassies if you have problems. When asked for identification during international travels, you can supply the passport that is least likely to raise eyebrows or cause problems among officials. You can also travel to both countries as a native citizen, avoiding the lengthy airport queues and questioning about your purposes.
Educational Workshops Initiative
We will have monthly educational workshops that will educate the community on the value of growing and eating healthy foods that can change and heal our bodies the way that God intended.
Eliminate Police Excessive Use of Force Initiative
We are working to eliminate police excessive use of force and end police brutality. Partnering with our local NAACP and other community organizations to host a series of Town Hall meetings to address the issues.

2. We will let the community know their rights, when stopped by a police officer.
3. Just a simple Q & A with our Chief of Police.
Our fellow members can assist by helping get the community out to these events. Help with planning the above as well.
Establishing Solid Black Owned Businesses by Building Initiative
This initiative will enable business owners to build their businesses credit by using the EIN number and not the owner's social security number as the means to build credit for the business. It has long been established that a solid business has it's own credit and is able to stand on it's own by having the ability to secure credit and borrow money for inventory, payroll, supplies, etc.
Businesses officers should not have to provide a personal guarantee in most cases. It is necessary for black business owners to tap into the credit and capital available to non-minority business owners in order to succeed and thrive. In this initiative, we seek to assist 500 newly and established businesses by the year 2020; this will provide black business owners the ability to provide over 6500 new jobs and assist in the goal of achieving $100,000,000 in buying power to build black owned businesses in multiple cities and states.
This initiative will focus on black owned businesses located in the Dallas area and will encourage those businesses to conduct business at the local, state, national, and International levels by networking with business owners in the black community and those who are members of Black Wall Street USA. Businesses who are not members of BWSUSA will be encouraged to join in order to further the initiatives.

The opportunity is to increase the number of registered financial advisors in our communities across America. The ultimate goal is to establish financial service brokerages in all of Black Wall Street USA's Districts creating jobs in the community with individuals who live in the community. It's a win-win situation for the company that is partnering with us, the registered reps and BWSUSA.
Follow Dreams Production Initiative
This initiative seeks to spread the message of love and equality for all mankind, through documentary films by writing and producing stories that help contribute to positive social changes in our society. Despite the enormous steps we have taken towards making the world a place of less discrimination, we still unfortunately see that the human race is plagued by prejudges.
People still see themselves as better than other individuals because of race, gender, socioeconomic class, or disabilities. Although many do not want to fathom the reality that we still live in a world where discrimination is almost institutionalized as an integral part of law and national policy, much evidence shows quite the contrary. This initiative entails a documentary that tells the story African Americans in the area of Science and their great contributions. The film will reveal how their efforts have advanced human understanding of the exceptional scientific works of so many men and women of color.
Global Greenology National Initiative

The municipalities must clearly define their program and create a clear policy. The state must determine where they want their supplier diversity program to focus: on businesses owned by women, specific racial and ethnic groups, people with disabilities, veterans, or small or disadvantaged businesses, for example. Then municipalities must create a supplier diversity policy statement that defines these groups so people know what to look for and how to evaluate various municipal agencies. The municipality policy should be part of their standard, non-negotiable operating procedure.
Municipalities must secure commitments from the top down that are key to supplier-diversity success and is unwavering in leadership commitment. Have the agency's head executive personally sign off on supplier-diversity goals and metrics; Audit their own state supplier-diversity numbers; Mandate that supplier-diversity metrics be included in every request for proposal (RFP). Black Wall Street USA believes that in order that municipalities strengthen their commitment to diversity, the elected officials must make sure that the head of the supplier diversity program is at the senior management level or above, and has control over state government purchasing. And we further recommend that this person has gone through the program and a person of color.
Make all ageny executives accountable. Tie the attainment of supplier diversity goals to the compensation and performance plans of state higher-ups and senior management. We want the leaders to set individual goals that differ for each business system or unit based on size and then incent–using performance bonuses–against those supplier-diversity targets, which should be reported regularly at least quarterly. We request that the municipality give metrics proper visibility, create a scorecard that places appropriate weighting as it relates to diverse vendors so state decision makers can measure the benefits of selecting them.
Develop and identify opportunities for supplier diversity. We suggest that the government supplier diversity development should be formally integrated into its strategic sourcing process. For example, insert standard language into RFQs/RFIs/RFPs to make it easy to identify the categories of diversity suppliers. Set goals for the supplier selection process so diversity suppliers are included. Proactively develop diversity suppliers for underutilized product, service, and commodity areas. And ensures that the supplier screening process is transparent, fair and consistent?
Municipalities should leverage business networks like Black Wall Street USA to find new diverse suppliers. A common best practice is to create a comprehensive database of Black- owned businesses. But this requires a substantial amount of time and effort. Business networks like ours can help the state with this. For example, matching services such as ours make it much easier for buyers to find and evaluate non whiite suppliers. Even better, these suppliers are already set up to transact with the state through the network. Business networks can also provide a ready-made purchasing system that helps the state track supplier diversity performance and target specific contracts for additional focus, outreach, or consideration.
We strongly suggest that the governmental agencies and corporate America integrate supplier diversity throughout the state system. When supplier diversity is integrated into the strategic-sourcing process, it makes it much more sustainable. US municipalities needs to consider implementing a champion”program so they'll have enterprise-wide commodity champions with significant supplier-diversity commitments.
Agency heads can raise awareness, keep their finger on the pulse of opportunities, serve as liaisons with stakeholders, and assist with diverse spend targets. We further recommend that the municipality heads create a
supplier diversity 101 program for all employees that will answer basic questions such as, What is the value of supplier diversity? What’s the business case? And why is it important?
Black Wall Street USA recommends the establishment of a continuous improvement plan. There’s always room for improvement–and as the US municipality diversity supplier program grows, they will need to enhance processes so that demands continue to be met quickly and efficiently. For real and long term improvement we propose that municipalities conduct independent internal annual audits to verify if current activities and results align with the states plans and expectations, as well as changing regulations.
In California they run surveys with key internal stakeholders to see if its current program is meeting and exceeding their expectations. Others can also create a process to facilitate ongoing communication between other agencies and SBEs and other black and minority groups. And participate in benchmarking with other corporations and entities to identify best practices.

Holistic Nutrition Initiative
Eating for mind, body and soul. In today's fast-paced, high-demand world, we have become a culture focused on convenience and that includes how we eat. When hunger strikes, it's much easier to open a can, unwrap a package or pop a lid than it is to actually prepare a fresh meal. But according to holistic nutritionists, the cost of convenience is not so much the impact on your pocketbook, as it is the impact on your health. With the epidemic rise of obesity and diabetes, the link to your health and what you eat has taken center stage and many are looking to holistic nutrition as a way to not only feed their bodies but heal themselves as well.
Holistic nutrition is all about eating healthy food as close to its natural state as possible for optimum health and wellbeing. Hallmarks of holistic nutrition include unrefined, unprocessed, organic and locally grown whole foods. It's an approach to eating that very consciously considers everything that's eaten and focuses on eating for health above all else. Holistic nutritionists believe that food is not only fuel, but medicine for the body. This famous quote; "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food," is a principle embraced and promoted by holistic nutritionists.
By following a holistic nutrition plan, you may experience a number of health benefits, also holistic nutritionists believe that many chronic illnesses can be prevented or improved through diet, and promote the use of holistic nutrition to manage conditions.

Kola Nut Collaborative Initiative
The Kola Nut Collaborative is a timebank recently formed in southeast Chicago to weave together individuals, neighborhoods and organizations in a network of reciprocal service exchange. As a community development tool, timebanking holds tremendous collaborative promise as an incentive towards participation in prosocial activities within a community.
By offering a cashless incentive which members can readily trade on the network for other useful services, we reward those participants who are already performing beneficial work in formations such as block clubs or neighborhood associations and incentivize those who may not have participated in the past to become involved.
Timebanking enables individuals to decrease the financial pressure on themselves by offering them a network of neighbors who can provide services while offering that network an opportunity to be of assistance to someone else. Inside the timebank, time is traded as the currency. Our mission is to promote and sustain a robust timebanking infrastructure which supports these non-monetary transactions amongst individuals and organizations allowing a greater sum of the realized value of work to be retained and shared within local communities.
Our vision is to make social infrastructure visible within our communities. Social infrastructure describes the invisible bonds and relationships which constitute a generative capital that can be accumulated and circulated through timebanking.

Seniors Holistic Health Initiative
A Holistic Approach For The Elderly The need for homecare might continue to increase as over the next decade as the elderly population is increasing and people are finding reasons to take care of their aged at home. As the location of care continues to move closer to home.
The caring relationship between a caregiver and a elderly is vital for the total wellbeing of the elder. Elders require a caring relationship, which enables enhanced conscious awareness of life and health experiences. The nature of the relationship is to be able to relate to each other and be harmoniously attracted in having a meaningful and social relationship. Relatively healthy older people, particularly those in the 60 to 70 age range, are likely to need services similar to other adult health center populations.
They may face challenges similar to their younger counterparts; language barriers, limited health literacy, or cultural factors may impact health care access. Yet for the older-old, these familiar challenges are compounded by additional barriers to optimal care and quality of life. The disabled of any age often need supportive services to remain as healthy as possible and in the community. As the population ages into the 75+ or 85+ categories, there is more likelihood for the presence of disability and the need for special services.
Many more health programs are now beginning to serve disabled elders and even more programs are realizing that, given demographic changes, they must plan to provide services in the future that encompass not only the physical needs of vulnerable patients, but also the psychosocial needs that significantly impact health, health care access, and quality of life.
