Mission

WE are the SHOCK & AWE of combatting the silent, invisible and deadly enimies of our daily HEROES by Honoring and Empowering those who have served. WE serve those who have given all they have to protect our rights as citizens and protect our homes and communities. They have given this so that we can all lay our head down at night and go to sleep knowing we will wake the next day with our freedoms and rights, as they are protected by our every day heroes doing their every day jobs. It is time to stop the mental health issues that are pushed to the side and ignored by a large portion of our community and address them to help these selfless warriors become whole once again.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There are 22+ U.S. military and first responders committing suicide each day. Though there are many organizations out there that are supporting the stop of this, WE are staying ahead of the game in three very important ways. The number one way is getting the public to be aware of the need to be supportive of this issue. The second way The People's Patriot Project is moving forward is by being proactive. Today just 6 percent of the population at large has served in the military, but 19 percent of police officers are veterans, according to an analysis of U.S. Census data performed by Gregory B. The third concept we use is that everything is done with a very personal touch. We find connections, instead of using referrals. This places the issue directly into a hand, and not at the end of a phone line, waiting for help. Together with our close connections, we can be assured that each struggling person we come in contact with will receive the best match care for his/her immediate concern.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
