Blueprint for a Better Deal for Black America

About Project 21

Project 21 is an initiative of The National Center for Public Policy Research to promote the views of African-Americans whose entrepreneurial spirit, dedication to family and commitment to individual responsibility have not traditionally been echoed by the nation’s civil rights establishment.

Project 21 participants have been interviewed by hundreds of media outlets, including the O’Reilly Factor, Hannity and Colmes, the CNN Morning News, Black Entertainment Television’s Lead Story, America’s Black Forum, the McLaughlin Group, C-SPAN’s Morning Journal and the Rush Limbaugh, Michael Reagan, Sean Hannity, G. Gordon Liddy and Larry King shows, as well as in newspapers such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Washington Times and many others.

Project 21 participants live all over the U.S. and have a variety of careers. What they have in common is a desire to make America a better place for African-Americans, and all Americans, to live and work. Project 21 members do this in a variety of ways in their own communities, and, through Project 21, by writing opinion editorials for newspapers, participating in public policy discussions on radio and television, by participating in policy panels, by giving speeches before student, business and community groups, and by advising policymakers at the national, state and local levels.

Project 21: A History

Project 21 is an initiative of The National Center for Public Policy Research to promote the views of African-Americans whose entrepreneurial spirit, sense of family and commitment to individual responsibility have not traditionally been echoed by the nation’s civil rights establishment. This became most obvious during the April 1992 riots in Los Angeles, when the media provided extended coverage of the reaction of liberal civil rights leaders to the events surrounding the Rodney King controversy. Curiously, the media made little mention of those in the African-American community who spoke out in favor of law and order and individual responsibility – and against the rioting.

Rather than merely complain about the lack of attention given to conservative and moderate African-Americans as typified by the coverage of the riots, The National Center for Public Policy Research convened a meeting of conservative and moderate African-American activists in mid-1992 to determine whether it was feasible to construct a network to bring conservative and moderate voices in the black community to the attention of the media. The answer was yes, and Project 21 was born. By March of 1993, Project 21 secured the necessary funding to hire a full-time coordinator to pursue its goals. Project 21’s mission includes the active promotion of conservative and moderate viewpoints by Project 21’s network of members in the media, and the ongoing recruitment of new members to be promoted.

Project 21 acts as a public relations network for moderate and conservative African-Americans, and is interested in promoting those African-Americans who want to discuss their beliefs not only in the privacy of their own homes but in thousands, sometimes millions, of homes across America. Whether a member is a talented writer, articulate speaker, dedicated policy analyst or just have interesting viewpoints on important issues, Project 21 is there to help its members get recognition.

Project 21 has enjoyed enormous success. Project 21’s network of African-American moderates and conservatives have been interviewed by hundreds of newspapers, talk radio shows and television programs throughout the country. Participants have been featured on such programs as CNN & Company, CNN Morning News, The McLaughlin Group, C-SPAN’s Morning Journal, Larry King, Rush Limbaugh, The Michael Reagan Show, BET’s Our Voices, and America’s Black Forum as well as in newspapers such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Washington Times, The Detroit News, USA Today, The Cleveland Plain-Dealer, and many others.

Project 21 members have been published, quoted or interviewed over 35,000 times since the program was launched in 1992.

Project 21 first burst into attention following the release of Black America 1994: Changing Direction in January 1994. A 77-page volume, Black America 1994 is a comprehensive assessment of the challenges and opportunities facing the African-American community. A collection of 15 essays written by Project 21 participants, the report addressed important contemporary issues including economic stagnation, crime, education, health, welfare, and the disintegration of the black family.

In the weeks following the report’s release, its contributors participated in several hundred media interviews, and Project 21 received nearly 5,000 requests for information and numerous offers of support.

Project 21 released a major report, The Health Care Ghetto: African-Americans and Health Care Reform, at a National Press Club press conference in August, 1994. The report was the first of its kind to analyze how various health care reform initiatives would affect minority communities.

In January 1995, Project 21 released a second annual report: Black America 1995: A New Beginning. The report consisted of 38 essays by Project 21 members on topics ranging from the information superhighway to crime. In January 1996, a series of profiles were released of black conservatives and moderates who shun government spending and embrace greater community involvement as the way to solve problems. Black America 1996: A Time for Renewal also included an agenda created by black conservatives and moderates outlining what government needs to do – and what it needs to stop doing – if people are going to start solving their own problems.

In 1997, following two years of research, Project 21 released an in-depth report: Black America 1997: How Government Harms Charities… And How Some are Succeeding Anyway. Until now, it has not been widely known that humanitarian groups suffer from government’s regulatory harassment. The 90-page report received front page newspaper coverage in Washington D.C. and led to calls from lawmakers interested in repealing the regulations that harm the ability of charities to help the poor.

Project 21 also has taken a lead role in bringing to public attention the fact that a substantial number of government environmental rules have a disproportionately negative economic impact on minorities. In addition to assisting with the research and publication of over 60 studies, op-eds and press releases on this topic in recent years, in 2002, joining with the John P. McGovern Center for Environmental and Regulatory Affairs to form a Center for Environmental Justice, Project 21 released a comprehensive econometric analysis of the impact of so-called “smart growth” regulations on minorities. The study, “Smart Growth and Its Effects on Housing Markets: The New Segregation” was published in November, 2002.

Project 21 is also actively involved in educating the public on proposals to empower communities rather than the government. For instance, Project 21 was instrumental in promoting the ideas incorporated in the Community Renewal Act, sponsored by Reps. Jim Talent (R-MO) and J.C. Watts (R-OK) in the 105th Congress. Project 21’s Contract with Black America, proposed to the leadership of the Republican Congress in January 1995, started the process that eventually led to the crafting of the Community Renewal Act.

Press Release /
Discriminatory Blaine Amendments Denied Educational Opportunities to Families in Need Washington, D.C. – Today's U.S. Supreme Court decision overturning Montana's discriminatory "Blaine Amendment" was cheered by members of the Project 21 black leadership network, who called it a major win for poor and minority parents who have been forced into failing public schools based solely upon where they live.

Noting that black women are disproportionately at risk of unnecessary harm during abortion procedures, Project 21 had appealed to the justices through a legal brief that argued against throwing out “a substantial medical benefit that justifies any minimal burden” and thus allowing abortionists to escape oversight and safety requirements. “It’s a sad day when the Supreme Court rules ...

Potential Return of Kneeling for Flag and Anthem “Not Justified” Washington, D.C. – Activists with the Project 21 black leadership network condemned National Football League (NFL) Commissioner Roger Goodell for submitting to player demands that would allow the tragic death of George Floyd to be used to politicize professional sports. “No, Roger Goodell, disrespecting the flag is not justified,” said Project 21 Co-Chairman Horace Cooper. “Too many Americans - black, white and brown - have given their lives fighting for our nation’s flag. Neither the NFL nor any organization should let protests or riots be an excuse to encourage this ...

Black Conservatives Praise Justices for Rejecting “Race Card” Allegations to Root Out Real Bias Washington, D.C. - Allegations of racial discrimination in contracting must prove that bias is the sole reason for a minority company losing a deal, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously on Monday. This decision frees up plaintiffs and courts to focus on true instances of discrimination, according to members of the Project 21 black leadership network. “With this decision, the justices unanimously ruled that Americans must show that ‘race was the determining factor behind their claim’ of discrimination and not just merely one of several factors,” said Project ...

In their comment, the Project 21 co-chairmen – Horace Cooper, Council Nedd II and Stacy Washington – wrote: “Commonsense NEPA reform, with a mindful balance of environmental protection and economic growth, is key to a more productive America that helps all of its citizens.” NEPA is a 50-year-old federal regulation subjecting major construction projects and land management decisions to layers of permitting and ...

Black Activists Rebuke Comparision of Impeachment to Civil Rights Movement

CNN has a white man of wealth and privilege who hails from a prominent political family. He claims he’s the victim of a very questionable slur,” said Project 21 member Christopher Arps. “This is liberal logic.” Cuomo confronted ...

Defunding Police Defeats Public Safety, Especially in Black Communities, by Nadra Enzi

New Visions Commentary /
George Floyd’s murder was a horrific crime, and it has literally changed the world. But we need to take a moment to calm ourselves. We must reflect on our goals for fixing law enforcement problems before letting radical activists take control of the criminal justice reform agenda. That’s because — in the wake of the memorial services, protests and riots — there has been a steady call for changing the police by defunding them. On the June 14 edition of “Face the Nation,” an interview with Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best was prophetically titled “Policing will never be as it ...

Black vs. Green: Black Americans Fight Climate Measures That Increase Energy Costs, by Donna Jackson

New Visions Commentary /
While I don’t often find myself agreeing with Jesse Jackson, I applaud his support of a pipeline to bring affordable natural gas to the predominantly minority and low-income farming community of Pembroke Township, Illinois. As a black conservative who opposes Jackson on issues from racial preferences to economic policy to protecting our ballots from needless risks under the guise of voting rights, I think he’s courageous for breaking with the liberal establishment and radical environmentalists to help this struggling community benefit from affordable energy. Rising above the political fringe, Jackson said about hooking up the rural community south of Chicago ...

Americans of all stripes recoiled at the video of George Floyd's death in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Elected officials all across America have condemned this needless act of violence.

Mail-in Voting Is NOT the Solution, by Christopher Arps

New Visions Commentary /
The Coronavirus pandemic has completely upended the 2020 election cycle in a myriad of ways. The novel virus and social distancing have made traditional campaigning with handshakes, baby-kissing, and massive indoor and outdoor rallies practically impossible. As a result, the presidential campaigns have become virtual, especially in the case of presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. COVID19 has relegated the Biden campaign to doing media interviews and townhalls events from his makeshift basement studio in Wilmington, Delaware. President Trump has, of course, suspended the huge rallies he made famous during his 2016 campaign, but because he is the President and has ...

COVID-19 Solution: Pelosi’s $3 Trillion Wishlist vs American Exceptionalism, by Horace Cooper

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi released an 1,800-page wish list of left-wing spending priorities that will cost future generations of American taxpayers at least $3 trillion. In less than a week, she brought it to the House floor and rushed to pass it. Thomas Sowell once called schemes like these examples of liberalism’s “unconstrained vision” —untethered from reality.  Whatever the case, the lefts ’answers to the thorny questions presented by the COVID-19 crisis remain true to form: more government control, more government spending, more national debt. Across the board, these are the wrong answers. Pelosi’s HEROES Act is an unserious proposal ...

COVID Will Pose a Fresh Threat That We Must Face—The Terrorist Threat, by Christopher Arps

Grim news reports have begun to emerge from the Middle East. Yes, they refer to the same topic that dominates the headlines in the US: the spread of COVID-19. But these headlines have an added, dangerous element: military leaders are growing concerned about COVID-19 leading to a resurgence in the strength of ISIS and other terrorist groups. In war-torn Syria, the government is concerned about the makeshift prisons that house tens of thousands of ISIS fighters. The guards—already overwhelmed, under-staffed, and under-resourced—do not know how they will manage a virus outbreak in the prison. They themselves may become infected, and ...

COVID-19 Prisoner Release Schemes are Utter Nonsense, by Stacy Washington

When California governor Gavin Newsom pointedly notes the political opportunity provided by the pandemic, we should stop, look up and listen. At a virtual press conference April 2,  Newsom spoke of ushering in a new “progressive era” saying, “Absolutely, we see this as an opportunity to reshape the way we do business and how we govern.” Local governments across the nation have responded to the opportunity by doing the unthinkable: freeing criminals. Adherence to the American social contract means compliance when government asks us to limit personal liberties and means of supporting ourselves to protect the vulnerable. Consequently, law-abiding citizens are actually harming themselves ...

Coronavirus Reveals the Recklessness of Drug Pricing Reform, by Stacy Washington

New Visions Commentary /
A Seattle patient just became the first American to receive a potential breakthrough vaccine for COVID-19. That vaccine -- developed by Moderna, a Massachusetts biotech start-up -- is one of several experimental coronavirus vaccines and treatments that pharmaceutical firms are developing around the country. The industry's lightning-fast reaction is a testament to the ingenuity of America's scientists -- and the dynamism of America's drug-development system. And it's a reminder that Washington's ongoing effort to defund pharmaceutical innovation puts millions of lives at risk. To say that drug firms have moved quickly to combat this pandemic is an understatement. In the nearly three months ...

Trump Administration’s Reaction to Coronavirus Has Been Good for America, by Stacy Washington

Last fall as Americans joyously celebrated the new retail hybrid holiday of Halloween and Thanksgiving, the very first cases of novel coronavirus appeared in China’s Hubei province. If the Chinese were aware, or were willing to share information on the new illness, the situations in South Korea, Italy and Iran would perhaps be very different. Instead, the virus was allowed to spread unchecked for nearly two months, before the tightly controlled communist Chinese government would go on to share information with the World Health Organization. On Dec. 31, the WHO and China Center for Disease Control quietly issued an outbreak ...

Regulatory Reform Benefits Black America, by Council Nedd II

In his State of the Union address, President Donald Trump heralded a “blue-collar boom” he called “relentlessly pro-worker” and “pro-growth.” Crediting this to sensible regulation, he proclaimed America to be a “place where the action is,” adding that “our nation’s manufacturing might” is yielding historic low unemployment for chronically disadvantaged groups including blacks, Hispanics, women and those without advanced educations. Before his address, he announced what could be his most significant regulatory step with a proposed White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) rule to reform the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The Project 21 black leadership network has submitted a public comment to ...

An immigration report card for President Trump, by Stone Washington

New Visions Commentary /
Trump has kept several of his most important campaign-trail promises President Trump’s base cares about immigration more than any other issue. Fifty-nine percent of Trump voters named “immigration” as a top-three issue in a recent Harvard/Harris poll. By comparison, just 35 percent listed “terrorism/national security” and only 29 percent said “the economy and jobs.” If even a fraction of these voters feel Mr. Trump hasn’t delivered on the immigration reform promises he made in 2016, they may stay home in November — and cost him a second term. So, how’s the president doing on his signature issue? Let’s take a ...

Bail Reform? It Just Causes More Crime, by Horace Cooper

An obscure organization — the Arnold Foundation — has been cheerleading a series of changes to cash bail nationwide. Its supporters claim that being required to post-bail hurts the working poor and minorities disproportionately. They also argue that in most instances bail isn’t even needed. They are wrong. Bail isn't useful, it is essential. Society will either warehouse every accused defendant prior to trial (at considerable taxpayer expense) or allow them to post a bond promising to show up for trial. We can't simply let them go after an arrest with just their promise to appear. But that's the Arnold ...

It’s hard to believe that the overwhelming majority of Americans — whether or not they were ever partisan — haven’t formed an opinion by now about the state of our national politics.

And, even after a moderate Senate acquitted the president on the articles of impeachment brought against him by the angry liberals running the U.S. House of Representatives, it seems that there may be no end in sight for this nonsense.

Trump Administration Rule Change Ends ‘Birth Tourism,’ by Christopher Arps

The end of so called “birth tourism.” The White House issued this statement on Thursday: Beginning January 24, 2020, the State Department will no longer issue temporary visitor (B-1/B-2) visas to aliens seeking to enter the United States for “birth tourism” – ...

Today’s Civil Rights Struggle: Religious Tolerance, by Donna Jackson

New Visions Commentary /
As we celebrate the life and accomplishments of Dr. Martin Luther King, I am convinced he would look favorably on the gains made by African Americans during the Trump administration. Today we have record low unemployment, prison reform, greater faith-based outreach and permanent funding for historically black colleges and universities. King was a strong advocate for the economic and social advancement of black people. Under President Trump, these goals are being realized. Yet I think King would be puzzled and disappointed by the growth of hatred amid all this success. In particular, I believe he would be profoundly disturbed about ...

The Real Threat to Civil Rights? Trump Haters, by Donna Jackson

New Visions Commentary /
A common criticism of President Trump is that his presidency is a threat to civil rights. It is, but not because of anything he or his supporters have said or done. The real threat to civil rights comes from the environment his opponents have created. When my conservative black family members get together, the concerns about the Trump era that we discuss are about how liberal disregard for common decency and the rule of law could usher in a new era of Jim Crow laws. In the recent debate over Trump’s impeachment, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), a high-ranking liberal sometimes suggested ...

A Growing Economy Provides Opportunity to Move More Americans off Food Stamps, by K. Michael Conaway and Horace Cooper

The American economy is growing rapidly, unemployment is at historic lows and job opportunities are everywhere. We can all agree it is a terrific time for Americans looking to enter the workforce. But when the Trump administration recently finalized a rule that simply holds states accountable to the bipartisan 1996 Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act, commonly known as President Bill Clinton’s signature welfare reform, there was a flurry of outrage and hyperbolic headlines claiming otherwise. Disingenuous media reports and misrepresentations by many politicians have led many Americans to believe President Donald Trump is taking away critical Supplemental Nutrition Assistance ...

Friday Night Lights, Not Fights, by Martin D. Baker

Having played high school football, I know trash-talking is all part of the game. Getting into the opponent’s head can give a team an advantage. Fans do their part with chants. But everything should be civil and not taken beyond the confines of the stadium. But recent events have turned high school football fields into racial minefields. One Wisconsinfootball game was disrupted when a Cudahy High School player allegedly called the Brown Deer High School quarterback the n-word. In California, San Clemente High School fans allegedly used the n-word and other out-of-line taunts against players and cheerleaders from Lincoln High ...

No Justification for Anti-Semitic Language, by Marie A. Fischer

It’s hard to justify the term “Jewing” someone down as anything but offensive. I know. I’ve tried. A friend of mine once created an exclusive Facebook group called “Us Them Down.” We considered it satirical and somewhat safe since everyone in it was Jewish.  We were laughing at ourselves but still felt a little unsettled by the term. What’s more unsettling is when politicians use “Jewing down” matter-of-factly and justify it. In New Jersey, Trenton City Council President Kathy McBride recently told her colleagues during an private meeting that the reason a legal settlement was so affordable was because the ...

Protect Civil Rights with Citizen-Only Voting, by Christopher Arps
