The NAAFRA staff pushes forward to remind its membership that our aim is not to create another protest movement; ours it to create a unity of purpose movement, bringing into collective action a totally focused movement of “progress.”

This is an economic effort that seeks to produce products from our efforts, bringing change in our way or thinking, our way of seeing into the future and knowing we are the change we have waited for so many years. In the past we may have encountered some disappointment, but we persist. Each morning as we thank our God for making it possible that we are able to stand before our mirror and look into our faces, here is the change looking back at me.

Now it becomes necessary to make the decision: “am I willing to join others to do the body of work required to bring about the change I want?” If so, we all must aggressively reach out to other Afrikan-Amerikans and recruit them to join our movement of change, letting them know that the change is in our hands because the true God of our ancient ancestors has already blessed us to will ourselves to work hard to bring forward that change.

Take a look at the story of “Black Wall Street of Tulsa Oklahoma.” The accomplishments of our brothers/sisters of that period is the model we can use to bring about the change we seek. That’s what our purpose must become throughout the NAAFRA journey. We must usher in a new way of trusting one another, a new brotherly/sisterly love of reach other, one that can reach the neediest families within the membership of NAAFRA. 

Awhile we are completing the in-gathering process of getting our reunion families signed up in our NAAFRA movement, we must start putting a master plan around our ideas for change. The Chairperson in each of our reunion families can be an important part of putting together this master plan for progress. By submitting a list of priorities of ideas that NAAFA should focus on, would be the beginning of the change we seek.

Once our chairpersons are aware of what we can accomplish, we are trusting they will get busy making their desire to become a working participant of the building process immediately. Ideas must flow from throughout the membership body in order for NAAAFRA to become a relevant organization, capable of ushering in change that can impress the mind-set of the membership.

To create an economic vehicle to run on the tracks of economic plenty – we all will have to be on our best game from day one, on into the future of the NAAFRA journey.
