Some see the ever-increasing rise in mobile device use as a plague on society. However, we at PushBlack see it as an opportunity to heal society. That’s why we’ve made the commitment to meet people where they are — on their smartphones and tablets.
As the United States’ first mobile-based organizing group for Black Americans, we provide our people with information then lead them to take action. Our daily Black History messages work to inspire the masses. Marcus Garvey said, “A people with no knowledge of their history is like a tree without roots.” We won’t stop until our tree bears fruit.
Our subscribers learn from the trial and error of our ancestors in order to develop practical strategies for liberation today. Whether the result is advocacy action, voting, or developing their own institutions, we use our rich history and news as an entry point to help Black Americans take back control of our communities, families, and individual lives.
Since our inception in 2015, we have developed a relationship with over 500,000 subscribers who trust us to equip them with the necessary tools to make a difference in our community. We are currently on track to reach 2,000,000 subscribers by 2018 with the goal of building the largest citizen organizing force of Black Americans.
Through daily communications on text and Facebook Messenger, we are literally putting power in the hands of the people. This has made us the premier mobile source of information and action for Black folks around the country.
We push hard. We push forward. We PushBlack.
