The D.C. Declaration Statement:America is in Crisis
PROGRESSIVE NATIONAL BAPTIST CONVENTION, INC.
Dr. Timothy Stewart, National President
The Mission of the Social Justice Commission of the Progressive National Baptist Convention, Inc. is to create and sustain a cohesive social unit, composed of churches, pastors, and members of The Progressive National Baptist Convention, Inc., advocating for equity, justice and fairness for Black people across the world and especially in the United States of America.
We will accomplish our mission by strengthening communication between our constituents, and like-minded organizations, by demonstrating and developing, or joining, where we deem appropriate, direct action campaigns.
The foundation that supports our mission is best stated in three declarations put forth in three major U.S. cities, Washington, D.C., Birmingham, AL, and New York, NY
We invite you to read our declarations and join us as we confront and resist the evils of:
1. The Lie of white supremacy
2. Mass Incarceration
3. Cultural exploitation
4. Theft of land and labor
