As with other struggles within the Black community, H.O.P.E. is faced with much work and few
workers. So, if you are looking for a way to become active, sign up with us. We
need activists, men and women willing to do the practical work necessary to transform a vision into reality.
The burden is on us to determine whether the men and women who left our community as liabilities
will return as assets. Knowledge goes a long way towards our rise as a community. But active concern goes even further.
Join one of our committees today:
This committee organizes book drives and fundraisers; purchases books; and enlist bookstores to support organizational
goals. It also organizes members and supporters to pack books to be sent to individual prisoners and to prison libraries.
This committee functions as a bridge between the organization and the prison administrations, working to build
and maintain an operational relationship that will facilitate H.O.P.E.’s mission. It also replies to prisoner correspondence,
responding to inquiries and suggestions on behalf of H.O.P.E., and seek to organize programming that would take the message
of H.O.P.E. directly before the prison populace.
Community Relations Committee:
This committee takes the message of H.O.P.E. to the community. It is responsible for obtaining media contacts,
writing press releases, publishing brochures, newsletters and booklets, organizing speaking engagements and community forums.
