The Greatness Manifesto
The Greatness Manifesto is our Foundation’s rallying cry for overcoming the obstacles of division and rancor that divide us as Americans. As conscientious and fair-minded citizens, dedicated to the proposition that all humanity is created equal, we will do our part to achieve these overarching goals of uniting our citizenry, once again, as one nation, under God.
To that end, we will work to achieve the following:
- We aim to fundamentally break the back of the “cradle to prison pipeline” by providing meaningful alternative sentencing options for those within the juvenile justice system, while working with first-time offenders to help redirect them to more positive paths for their future.
- We will work to ensure that every child, regardless of race, creed, color, religion, sexual orientation or economic status, has the opportunity to become productive, law-abiding citizens of American society, poised to lead us into the dawn of a brand new day.
- We will encourage the expansion of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math curriculums amongst children ages 12-17, primarily those hailing from non-traditional and underrepresented segments of American society.
- We will call upon the best and brightest of our citizens to provide leadership and advocacy on the issues that matter most to the collective American family, and we will work to eliminate negative labels and stereotypes that divide us as a nation and ignore the basic strands that tie us together as a multicultural mosaic of humanity.
