Statement of Hope for the Future

Updated: Nov 11, 2020

We at DREAAM are saddened by the brutal killing of George Floyd by four Minneapolis police officers. Our condolences go out to the Floyd family and especially his six-year-old daughter Gianna. Our thoughts are also with the families of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and so many other victims of racial violence and injustice by the police.

We are inspired by the youth of Champaign-Urbana as well as those throughout the country who have risen up to say enough is enough―Black Lives Matter. DREAAM remains hopeful that our collective efforts will tackle and eradicate the persistent problems of police brutality and structural racism such that future generations will benefit from a true democracy.

DREAAM works every day to address the dehumanization and marginalization that Black boys and young men face in schools and other systems. We empower young people with opportunities, skills, and experiences to transform their lives and society. We envision a nation where Black boys and young men will be embraced and will experience healing. We seek to create a world where Black people not only matter but thrive and succeed.
