The 400 Foundation was birthed in February 2019 as a historical response to the 400th Anniversary of Slavery in North America and a biblical response to the Exodus liberation story after 400 years of oppression. The plan was to learn from and embrace African Americans’ 400 years of experience in North America. Second, mobilize the community’s growing outcry for change. Third, channel that energy to move our communities FORWARD in 2020.
The leadership team is made up of decades of religious leadership; Harvard, Yale, Historically Black Institutions, doctoral and legal degrees; executive level real estate and political resumes; extensive business development; and consultant experience. The list of supporting leaders represents over 400 houses of worship throughout the State of New York.
