Welcome

Spurred by the murder of George Floyd by police, in 2020 people of all races and cultures across the United States of America marched to protest systemic racial injustice and the pandemic of Black lives — such as Botham Jean, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Atatiana Jefferson — ending at the hands of police. The glimmers of hope for change have never been greater, but:

  1. How do we ensure these marches transform how Black people are perceived and treated?
  2. How do we explain the deeply rooted origins of these marches to students?
  3. How do we ease the challenging discussion of racial bias in the workplace?
  4. How do we identify steps we can take on a personal level that will lead to the dismantling of racism on a macro level in our communities, churches, schools, corporations, law enforcement, government, and beyond?

Organizations and institutions within the United States of America and abroad have found answers to all of the above through participation in The #ForBoInitiative by engaging and utilizing the resources provided here.
