About Reaching America

Reaching America, a 501 (c) (4) organization developed to address complex social issues impacting communities. We're focused on innovative solutions for African Americans not based on right or left wing views but what makes sense for a more united America. The country is divided right now and racial tension has elevated to levels we experienced in the sixties and seventies. We're at a point where our country needs to be rehabilitated in many ways. Reaching America has positioned itself as a leader in addressing these and other issues affecting African Americans in our country today. We look to encourage and inspire unity among everyone in what we believe is a Modern Day Movement. This will be accomplished utilizing grass root efforts, social media, traditional media and PR. Reaching America will serve as a clearing house to deliver messages and let individuals decide what's best for their own situation. Please join the movement.
