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 a project of Freedom's Journal Institute for the Study of Faith and Public Policy. It is our conviction that many of the problems in the Black community, as well as others, could be solved if we gave more attention to building strong & healthy families.
In order to stop confrontations with the police, visits to the abortion clinics, the penitentiaries, and drug suppliers we must put the emphasis on the foundational problem of our day-- the dysfunction and disintegration of the Black family. Because if Black lives really matter then we need to build Strong family values.
