Global Reparations Activist Kamm Howard Expands Knowledge in 15-City Tour

“We Are Determined To Win”

African American communities have been receivers of hate crimes and financial neglect for centuries while being stripped of their true history. Throughout the years, Black communities have begun to find their power and fight for what is right and rightfully theirs. California-based company Reparations United and director Kamm Howard, MBA, have taken the lead in educating Black communities and redressing the harm toward its communities to make a federal change.

Reparations United aims to build a lean structure to select specific issues and educate, organize, and mobilize existing coalitions to fund community preparatory programs. In efforts to build awareness during this critical time in America for African American communities, Reparations United has begun embarking on its 15-city Unity Tour with a message of “The Mission, the Mandate and the Method,”—seeking to diffuse the contentions in the movement that distracts communities from the goal of reparations.

“As Long as We Are in A Situation of Not Being Free, I’m Always Going to Fight.”

Director Kamm Howard is a global activist and former Co-Chair of N’COBRA, where he assisted in forming the vision, developing, and implementing many actions to catapult the reparations movement. Howard’s drive stems from extensive knowledge and a deep understanding of what the African American culture has experienced. He believes that as a people, you can do anything in this country, as African Americans have exceeded each time; they believe they can.

“We will manifest this mission through our work, strategy, and building the collective will of activists in communities across America.” – Kamm Howard.

The Reparations Unity Tour is a movement laser-focused on educating communities and motivating Black Americans to push this issue to a national discussion. This opportunity to get to a better place as a people in America demands effort from all. The goal date for establishing the Executive Order is 2023’s Juneteenth holiday.

According to Kamm, there has been a 25% increase in support of reparations for African Americans from outside demographics that now have the knowledge of the importance of this movement, making this the most critical time to continue to push forward. The ultimate goal is to receive pointed acknowledgment and public apology similar to that of Holocaust victim descendants.

The 15-city tour has traveled throughout California, beginning in Oakland, and will proceed in St. Louis on March 25-26, 2023, and New York on March 29, 2023. With a mantra of “We are Determined to Win,” the Reparations Unity tour has created an impact.

Tara Lynn Townes is Making her Mark by Putting a Stop to Bullying Nationwide

The Unexpected Beauty In Purpose

In life, we know the importance of seeking your overall being and purpose, and throughout a person’s journey, you’ll learn how your purpose can be found near your passion. For Tara Lynn Townes, creator of Bullying Buddy Consulting, her passion stems from a personal experience that turned into an application that will change the future of children and adult safety and reveal her purpose. 

Tara Lynn Townes is a speaker, author, inventor, and mental therapist with 20-plus years of experience assisting children, parents, and families. Leading up to her activism for bullying and app creation, Tara Lynn’s son was a victim of bullying. She decided to make a difference for her son and other children when she learned of this. According to the Centers for Disease Control, there are approximately 4,4000 deaths by suicide as a reflection of bullying in the U.S. Tara Lynn has become an expert in her skills to make a difference in these statistics.

 The bullying epidemic is widespread throughout the nation. It has continued to occur within schools and homes, causing a rapid change in communities and concerns for the mental and physical safety of the youth. Aiming to make a difference in lives and communities nationwide, Tara Lynn is working diligently to place her safety app in New Jersey schools and throughout the U.S. The Bullying Buddy app is an interactive tool for parents and children, created to record and alert parents and school administration in real time. If a child is a receiver of bullying, they can utilize the app to upload videos and pictures for their parents to have evidence and adequately intervene. The application also uses text reminders if parents can’t see the alert at the time sent. 

 Aside from the importance of intervening and trying to stop bullying, the app also educates its users with curriculum-based material and tools for identifying a bully in various situations to build awareness for its users. The Bullying Buddy app will show children they are not alone and encourage them to assist in preventing these actions. 

“The Holy Grail Bible To Bullying.”

 In the continued effort to build awareness in schools and households, Tara Lynn is set to release her book Are You Raising a Bully? on March 15, 2023, following a book tour to spread this growing issue causing the loss of so many young children. A New York Times Best-Selling Author calls this book the “Holy Grail and Bible to Bullying.” In this new release, Tara Lynn will discuss bullying, including examples and how to catch bullying in the early stages of a child’s life. 

 “Ages 2-7 are the pre-operational stages of development; this is where it begins to show up in children.”-Tara Lynn Townes.

As a mental therapist with an extensive background with adults, Tara Lynn created STOMP, a new app set to release in 2023 that will address adult bullying, sex trafficking, elderly abuse, and domestic and racial violence. This innovative creation will record and alert authorities as an incident occurs. The beauty of STOMP is that its users can alert up to five family members. 

With her passion for making this world a better and safer place, Tara Lynn must also balance a challenging profession and herself. To continue in this line of work, she mentions how staying grounded and maintaining a healthy spiritual life is how she continues to move forward. 

Tara believes love is the greatest healer; through her work, she wants to represent love and acceptance for all humanity. 

“With love, we will begin to see a place with less violence.”- Tara Lynn Townes.

CASSIUS F. BUTTS: An Exceptional Moment With An Exceptional Man

To converse with American businessman and two-time presidential appointee, Cassius F. Butts means that you’ll walk away with an abundance of motivation. His intelligence, wit, and charisma are just a few of the things that make him stand out. To avoid being pigeonholed, he always strived to be unconventional—and found creative workarounds to life and educational obstacles. A strong man of faith, he has never  conformed to the status quo. Instead, he believes in following a steady path and trusting in himself rather than societal “norms.”

 Appointed by President Barack Obama, Cassius was the first African-American to earn the seat of Region IV head for the U.S. Small Business Association (SBA). In five record-setting years, he oversaw the distribution of over $30 billion in loans to small businesses in eight southern states. Having worked in various industries, he has acquired a wealth of knowledge and expertise, which he employs effectively in his current positions.

Paying it forward, Cassius has stated on record that his life experiences significantly influenced his entrepreneurial path and his ability to assist numerous entrepreneurs in growing their businesses.

“To be exceptional; one must do something for someone other than oneself.” — Cassius, on using his platform to elevate others.

His work for the Democratic and Republican parties tops the list of his career accomplishments, but he’s only scratched the surface!

Looking at his extensive experience on paper, one might assume Cassius has never encountered any obstacles, and that couldn’t be farther from the truth. His book debut, Exceptional: Being the Exception to the Rule chronicles his journey through education, career growth and everything in between. During the read, he reveals how he developed the necessary confidence to climb what some would consider an impossible ladder.  

When asked how he stays grounded with such an illustrious repertoire and record-breaking success, he says he thinks about humility, honesty, and letting himself be vulnerable daily. 

 Cassius’s debut book discusses various methods for turning tragedy into triumph and is set for release in Q1, 2023. Leaders in business and those with an entrepreneurial spirit will find great value in this book. Cassius discusses his quest for enlightenment, his wide range of personal experiences, and the faith that informs his daily decisions and actions. With confidence, we know that his book will inspire and motivate readers to go after their dreams and make an impact in the world.

 “It has been my experience that you, as an individual, exist because you have a purpose. What you have to offer has value and meaning, so it stands to reason that others have meaning and purpose too.” —Cassius F. Butts

Cassius Butts’s multi-city tour is scheduled to kick off in Boston in March.
