BMe (pronounced “be me”) is a dynamic, growing national network of inspired Black men and thousands of other community-builders, of all races and genders, who connect to share, inspire and empower communities.
Black men and boys are assets to their communities, and have long been engaged in addressing the issues, challenges and opportunities affecting their neighborhoods. BMe recognizes and celebrates these all too often unsung heroes who are the tip of the iceberg of the extensive assets in communities of color. Each year BMe identifies 30-50 inspired Black men who are deeply committed to the well-being of others—and funds them, promotes their stories, and networks them with others, increasing the impact of their community-building efforts.
You can join BMe and take their pledge:
- We believe that Black men and boys are assets to society and important members of the human family;
- We know that valuing all members of the human family is the most prosperous way forward for our diverse nation;
- We reject any narratives that denigrate people and prejudices one against another;
- So we are committed to working with others—in asset-oriented ways—to bring about a more caring and prosperous America.
