300 MEN MARCH MISSION
To decrease community violence
300 MEN MARCH PHILOSOPHY
Accountability / Solution-Oriented / All Lives Matter / Humanity is One / Collective Consciousness
We hold ourselves accountable for the successes and failures in our community by looking within to provide permanent answers and lasting solutions.
When we recognize, identify, or discover a problem, we are obligated to recognize, identify, or discover a solution to that problem.
Acknowledge that ALL LIVES MATTER; no matter the race, religion, gender, profession,
socio-economic status – we advocate for ALL victims of violence.
Recognize the humanity in all; we focus on the goal of positive change.
Individuals make up this movement. However, egos must be minimized in order to address conflict and society’s challenges, which affect all of us.
