The People's Campaign

UPDATE: APRIL 14, 2017. We have raised the first $10K to launch in NYC SUMMER 2017. We are now raising the funds needed to secure our second city!

The People's Campaign is about empowering people to empower people. Join the movement at any time  by contributing to raise donations for 15 communities on American soil that are in need of national support. 

In his farewell speech, 44th President Barack Obama said "I am asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about change — but in yours... All of this depends on our participation; on each of us accepting the responsibility of citizenship."

In 2016, I wrote my first play SOMEDAY. The stage gave me a platform to start a conversation with hundreds of people. However, it was clear talking wasn't enough. People are ready to act, and now we can use our access and collective power to make things happen. 

THE PLAN:
Starting this Summer with your participation, a small street team will travel to 15 States (all of which have had cities in national news due to injustice.)

New York, Maryland, Ohio, Illinois, South Carolina, Michigan, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Florida, Louisiana, North Carolina, Missouri, Wisconsin, California, Texas.





WHAT WILL WE DO IN EACH STATE?
1. Join organizers, creatives, educators and influencers to shed light on local problems and solutions.

2. Organize events to promote solidarity and empowerment.  

3. Make a $10,000 donation to serve an immediate need for the community.

4. Create digital content to sustain connectivity and engagement with the general public.


The web is oversatured with information but no action. Even injustices like the poisonous water in Flint become rhetoric and we live our lives as if people like you and I aren't suffering. We can't afford to just move on with the news cycle, because if it were your family you would want people to be there for you until things change.

Well change starts right here with your participation. Right from your device you can support local communities that need a united front of everyday people. Donate, spread the word and use your digital action to make a real impact.

All hands on deck!
