Black Families Matter


To see thriving marriages and families in our communities as the norm and not the exception.


Is to change our communities one family and one marriage at a time.


Black Families Matter is an initiative of Freedom's Journal Institute for the Study of Faith and Public Policy. Our earnest conviction is that many of the Black community's problems, as well as others, could be solved if we gave more attention to building strong & healthy families.

We believe that to minimize confrontations with the police, eliminate visits to the abortion clinics, school dropouts and delinquency, incarcerations, as well as the illicit use of drugs and drug suppliers, we must focus on combatting the underlying problem--the dysfunction and disintegration of the Black Family. Because, if "Black Lives" really matter, we must commit to building our communities with a legacy of strong family values.
