Black Communities United for Progress (BCUP) is a virtual community formed in 2013 by organizations and activists across the nation desiring to create a global stage for rigorous discourse and debate about America’s racist public and private policies. BCUP expects that the presentation of differing ideas and thoughts as well as in-depth point and counterpoint discussions will give rise to new local and national partnerships and initiatives. Such coalitions will succeed in bringing an end to devastating, life-diminishing acts that rob African Americans and others of peace, opportunity and justice on a daily basis.
In this new millennium, American discourse must rise to a higher level of consciousness in order to facilitate change based on promoting human rights and principles of equality. This objective can be accomplished only when thinking men and women of all races, educational backgrounds, and ages are no longer at the sidelines. BCUP is a place where you can join in and help set a new agenda for America by challenging outdated and dysfunctional viewpoints that do not serve the best interests of African Americans or other citizens at large. To that end, ONUS and BCUP encourage you to seek out those in this forum who share your views, align with them and ONUS, and move the agenda of racial equality to the forefront.
