From Facing Race 2008's Plenary 3, held on Saturday, November 15. The Compact for Racial Justice offers concrete strategies and policy proposals to reverse racial disparities and move our society towards full equity, inclusion and dignity for all people. The Compact transcends talk of personal prejudice with compelling evidence of institutional racism and realistic proactive solutions. It seeks to engage a broad multiracial base of activists, opinion leaders and policymakers in making government and powerful institutions accountable for eliminating racial inequality in our schools, hospitals, courtrooms and workplaces.

Join host Kay Quinn as she spotlights the injustices and racial divides that still exist in America today while community youths are vowing to show their expressions by hosting a concert in homage to Trayvon Martin, the young 17yr old Florida teen who was gunned down and murdered by the neighborhood watchman.
REAL Talk is a community oriented show that focus and engage dialog on very real issues that repeatedly plague and disenfranchise local communities. It is designed to open the lines of communication to address the hard issues many are afraid to discuss in this climate of racial divide.
We can no longer afford to walk around and ignore the elephant in the room. This is our time to engage the proverbial elephant head on.

Are you ready? Let the conversations begin...
Seoul, South Korea is the gathering place for this years meeting of the World Alliance of Religion Peace Summit on September 17, 18, and 19, and Denise Love, advocate for the rights of the incarcerated, will be a special delegate from the U.S. Representing the Chriss-Shaun/ Jesse Ma Houston Prison Ministry, Denise Love plans to share her passion about righting the injustices of those trapped in America's prison system. She will get an opportunity to meet with Ambassadors, Heads of State, religious leaders, healthcare advocates, and others who will speak about justice and prisons in countries struggling to end war and live in peace. The eyes of the world are on America, and after the Ferguson uprising over the killing of unarmed teen Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson, many more videos have surfaced on the Internet showing shocking scenes of police brutality. Ms. Love intends to present the case of America's racially biased Criminal Justice system to the world community with the hopes that international attention and pressure may put an end to the killing of citizens by police that continue to be casually dismissed particularly when the person killed is an African American male. The outrageous numbers of imprisoned U.S. citizens is a subject of concern for Ms. Love, who hopes to bring light to the profit motive that has corrupted the criminal justice system into a mere business. What can the international community do to bring pressure to the powers that be in America to end racial injustice? Is this the next step before taking America before the World Court to sue for human rights violations?
The name Black Wallstreet conjures up images of an economicaly thriving African American community attacked and burned to the ground by jealous whites. Today's efforts to resurrect an economically thriving African American community in the wake of the recent riots in Missouri prompt the question "How Ca Econoic Empowerment of African Americans End Racial Injustice?" The disrespect of African Americans has been at the root of American politics, economics and culture, the result of the wounds of slavery that remain unhealed. Can financial affluence alone reverse attitudes of disrespect for black life? Are neighborhoods more likely to get respect from law enforcement officers if the residents are also the business owners in the community? How can a stronger economy in formerly economically depressed communities result in more tangible political gaines? What collective action will it take to circulate money into areas that are currently suffering the consequences of longtime neglect. Chicago activist Mark Allen discusses the plans for Black Wallstreet and how economic development can diffuse racial tensions end the gang violence that is often used as an excuse for excessive police force against African American youth.

The outrage began with the shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman. It was the watershed moment where America and the world woke up and realized that for young, black men, a trip to the local Walmart can end in death. America’s problem with race though, including the countless shooting of unarmed , young, black men began long before Trayvon Martin.
A recent report though suggests that police in American shoot an African American male twice a week. This is nothing new. This phenomena is almost certainly underreported as only 4% of police departments within the United States provided these statistics to the FBI and are based on a system of self-reporting. As a democratic nation, we are not only failing when it comes to race issues, but actually turning back the clock on the civil rights movement. To make matters worse, it is a rare occasion for police charged and successfully prosecuted.
