The Rochester Black Personhood Initiative exists to educate the community toward an understanding of the personhood of all, especially the black preborn girl and boy, laying a foundation for a personhood amendment to the constitution of New York State.
A person is an organism with unique human DNA governing his or her own maturation from conception to natural death. Every person bears the image of God. Any person, therefore, demands our utmost dignity, respect, and protection—man, woman, boy and girl—from the womb to the tomb.
The Rochester Black Personhood Initiative is the result of a coalition of concerned organizations, and is lead by a executive team of pastors and leaders in the Black and Hispanic communities.
