#BecauseCommunity

Let's Continue the Conversation...

Strengthening the community through Education, Empathy, and Empowerment.

WHY I DO IT

I strongly believe that we have to be the change we wish to see in the world. I AM the change I wish to see in my communities. I began my Because Community initiative as a way of describing the initiatives that are all so dear to me.

I grew up on Chicago’s South Side and know what it’s like to have to overcome obstacles, challenges and deal with adversity. Through those experiences, I still had an amazing upbringing and some great examples to help me decide what type of human being I wanted to be. Adulthood has also taught me a lot as I strive for positive humanism.

As part of my mission to “be good”, Because Community is my own personal way of giving back and setting the example as a positive contributor of today’s society.

What I Do

From Chicago to Georgia, Because Community advocates for three causes.

​1. Positive Community- Police Relations Education
   o Continuing Law Enforcement conversations from a civilian perspective. Getting rid of the stigma behind the badge.
Communities rely on police departments to "protect and serve" and the police, in turn, rely on community support and cooperation, however, the relationship is not always agreeable or engaging. Through doing some research on various relationships between law enforcement agencies and her neighbors in several communities, Bret serves as a catalyst to bridge the gap.

2. Community Safety and Survivability Strategies Education

   o Continuing practical conversations on risk reduction strategies for home, personal, internet and social media safety. Nobody wants to be a victim. Youth and Seasoned Citizens are especially vulnerable. Bret, serves as a servant of the community, bridging the gap through speaking presentations and information sharing.

3. Mentoring and Personal Development Education
   o With a focus on being a positive role model for today’s youth, Bret sets the example of what success looks like. When we show others the way and make them feel empowered, we can change lives. Let’s continue the conversation on making good decisions, setting and achieving goals, conflict resolution, safety, and positive self-image. 

How I Do It

I am not part of any foundation or organization, and I will not be starting my own. I operate independently for flexibility and cross-collaboration capability. I DO partner & collaborate with various established organizations, groups, and thought leaders.
I see myself as a vessel to connect people and ideas, people and change, and various like-minded organizations.

I love to make things better and be a change catalyst.
