   “The only bond worth anything between
human beings is their humanness

                                                                                  – Jesse Owens

What is the Human Promise?


The Human Promise is the premise that we, as human beings, Americans and a society, must actively walk and live Dr. King's Dream, and emphasize human progress as Americans. We can no longer just talk or reminisce  on the power and purity of Dr. King's Dream, but through considering the humanity in each other and all of us, and actively working towards reconciliation, The Human Promise can be achieved. It starts with a dialogue...

Walking and living the dream
Mission Statement

The mission is to foster awareness, initiate a formal dialogue on the human condition, and motivate meaningful change in society as to human progress, racial, ethnic, and cultural understanding, cooperation and reconciliation.   

The Dialogue
As a nation, a people, as a people of different origins, please consider taking one step towards a long needed national dialogue. A dialogue rooted in humanity and human progress, which will redefine where we have been and where we need to go as one nation and one people, even though we may be of different heritage, race or origin. This dialogue can be achieved through The Michael Initiative; a formal local and national dialogue that will foster awareness and transformation.  

"Let us be dissatisfied until that day when nobody will shout, "White Power!" when nobody will shout, "Black Power!" but everybody will talk about...human power." 

-Martin Luther King, Jr.
