Your support will also add your own voice to those of celebrities and other influencers in this global event that will unify our fight against racism.  TEARS: The Event Against Racism and Stereotyping celebrates the 57th Anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.s "I Have A Dream Speech" by assembling a stellar cast of individuals who reveal their own inner experiences on racism.  

Your donation puts you right into the action.  Not only will you be helping to support the build of a global database - the Man/Kind DREAM Project* (the Database for Racial Empathy Advancing Mankind), you'll be able to play a part in our global event on August 28.

The event, TEARS: The Event Against Racism and Stereotyping, is a global streaming event that takes a stand against racism through testimony and song.  We are doing this all online and using social distancing.  Integrating performance and blunt narrative, our cast will reveal highly personal thoughts from their own experiences with racism - some so revealing that our global audience will have a shift in their own awareness on racism.

Eight minutes and 46 seconds...

...within that span of time our tolerance ceased.  While the breath of one African American man was constricted under the weight of a minority of police who are sworn to ‘protect and serve’, our patience ended.  

Others have suffered under that weight:  latinos, transgenders, homeless, mentally ill - all whose voices will now be bolstered by yours.

We viewed all authority in a different light.  We crossed the street in order to avoid innocent confrontation.  Systematic racism can take your life away as a result of the most benign encounter, where a perceived slight or petty crime could carry a death sentence, judged, adjudicated and executed in the street.

Our frustration seethed and we hit the streets with a passion last felt when... when we were last beaten?  Last bloodied?  

Last gunned down for ‘driving while black’, or allegedly selling counterfeit cigarettes, being uncommunicative because of 

mental health issues, or what...walking in the wrong neighborhood?

They are bound by crying out “I can’t breathe”, or calling for their mother or father as their life ebbed away.

Black Lives Matters led us into those streets, and we were met with tear gas, rubber bullets, pushing and prodding us as if were cattle, herded into coves as if we were dolphins destined for sea circuses.  Who can forget the image of an elderly man pushed and left incapacitated on the street as police walked by, ignoring the blood seeping from his ear.

*The Man/Kind DREAM Project (the Database for Racial Empathy Advancing Mankind) will be an online platform that features the voices of thousands of individuals speaking out against racism.  No matter what our culture, we share the common thread of oppression.  Black, Latino, Asian, LGBTQ, Female, Disabled, Elderly - our voices need to be heard.  The DREAM Project will offer a searchable database of individual voices.  Teachers will access it, students will view it, organizers will leverage it, racists will hate it.  

Your support will help fund the programming, platform build, promotion, maintenance and promotion of the DREAM platform that will be online at www.mankinddream.com.

Thank you for your support.
