Principle #1
Respect for Life

The alarming rate of fratricide (brother killing brother) in the African American community should concern each and every one of us. We can no longer feel compelled to speak out against police violence against our fellow brothers and sisters then choose to remain silent when senseless acts of violence, which all too often lead to a tragic and often times untimely death, occur in our midst. Black men must adopt and remain committed to the concept of Respect for Life. 

If we don’t stop the killing of our own, who will?
