We Shall Overcome Foundation


                                                  ABOUT US


The primary objective of the  We Shall Overcome Foundation  is to make manifest Gods love by providing food, water, clothing, hygiene products, medical care, knowledge, advocacy and education to poor, needy, oppressed and marginalized people.

 

A seven-member Board of Directors governs the activities of the foundation and provides leadership for the organization's fundraising efforts. The board membership consists of professionals in the fields of Education, Nursing, Nutrition, Sociology, Psychology, Theology, Finance, Law and Construction. All board members volunteer their time and serve without compensation.

 

BROTHER AND SISTERHOOD OF MINORITY TRADESMEN

Here in the U.S., our Brother and Sisterhood of Minority Tradesmen is actively working to train youth, community members and ex-offenders in the construction trades. We believe that by doing so, young and marginalized people can re-claim the financial and cultural stability denied them for centuries.


WE SHALL OVERCOME LAWSUIT

Through an historic lawsuit filed in April of 2016, the We Shall Overcome Foundation successfully returned the iconic global civil rights anthem, "We Shall Overcome" to the public domain.  The world may now access its divine message of hope and justice without restriction. This anthem was born of the African American church and should be sung freely can now used by all people of the world without cost or restriction. 


RESTORATION

No country on Earth has ever meaningfully atoned for the unconscionable enslavement Africans. In keeping with the divine promise of, We Shall Overcome",, we are proposing historic legislative relief and support services to African American men, women and children in their struggle to achieve success and equality of education and employment in the US.  This is much more than "Reparations". (See "U.S. African American Restoration Act").


ARMS OF GOD, BRAZIL

Elsewhere, we provide hands-on humanitarian goods and services in Brazil (See "Arms of God ~ Brazil"). Among other things, the foundation provides food, clothing, medicinal items, health services, and construction services to needy children, orphanages and child care facilities in the North-East state of  Bahia, Brazil. We also send inner-city American youth to Brazil to meet these orphans, learn about their struggles and create meaningful relationships, while learning about the Afro-Brazilian culture and Portuguese language.
