Purpose of The Culture Center




Goal of The Culture Center

The goal of the Culture Center is to play a role in solving the problemthat we face as a people. As a people we need more "UNITY". We nee to liberate ourselves from the economic slavery of working in a system where the pay we recieve is insufficient to raise a family. We need to realize that there is economic strength in numbers. We need to be able to depend and have confidence in the use of our talents and skills to provide a source of income for ourselves independentl, by creating our own businesses. We need to be able to use our creativity positively to benifit our people. We need a facility that is ours, in which we have programs geared to our culture and needs. We need to have a place where our youths can go, get involved and use thier intelligence with something positive instead of hanging on the street corners. We need to educate ourselves about our history and the world we are living in.

We , as a people, can provide evertything we need. We already have our own facility, "The Culture Center", in which we have begun solving some of the problems we face as a people.But, this is just the beginning.

If you support these ideas, we want you to become a memberof "The Culture Center". Our goal is to get 1,000 members by the year 2000. To be a member of the Culture Center, it takes 27 cents a day. There are different types of membership. The economic strength is in numbers.If we had 1,000 members giving 27 cents a day for one year, collectively, we would raise $98,550."Ninety Eight Thousand Five Hundred Fifty Dollars can go a long way in solving the problems that we face as a people.
