The Sandra Bland Center for Racial Justice is being founded to support the families who suffer similar trauma, to that which I experienced upon Sandra’s sudden and tragic death. Since that time, I have been utilizing my own resources both financial and emotional to support other families who suffer from the consequences of racial injustice in the United States.
During this work, it has become abundantly clear the need for support of these families and related investigate work, far outstrips my personal resources. It is also clear that to make a significant impact to help these families, the work I have been doing needs to be scaled up significantly and immediately. To reach these families, I have decided to create a not-for-profit to provide an opportunity to build a center to serve these family’s needs.
The vision of the Sandra Bland Center is to build a suite of resources and leaders in local communities to provide the following resources and solutions:
I know this is truly an ambitious undertaking, and I have already recruited experts and volunteers who have the same vision and passion for this work that I do. It is incredibly exciting to see the individuals around the country who are willing to offer help and their networks and labor to help make this center a reality.
