About us

The United Peoples Coalition was created as a necessity for the representation needed by the diverse working class people of our communities. Our founders, Coyia Malone and Patrick Averhart, saw the void that had to be filled, the void created by racism, systematic oppression, sexism, homophobia, ageism, xenophobia and many of the social ills that plague our current society. We believe in the people and wouldn't exist without the people.

 

The purpose of the United Peoples Coalition is to advocate for the advancement of disenfranchised people of our communities. When our most vulnerable are protected, heard, and given equality that strengthens us as a whole. 

The Nine Point Plan

 

The Nine Point Plan is a comprehensive list of issues that have profound effects on the working middle class, working poor class, disenfranchised communities, people of color and the people at large. The tentacles of multi-level governmental leadership failure, oppression and systematic hate spreads throughout each and every one of our communities, and in ways we don’t often times realize.

 

These issues will be advocated for in various ways by the members of the United Peoples Coalition. The Nine Point Plan is the United Peoples Coalition’s guide to ensure the change we want to see in our communities, and with patience, a plan and persistence the change we want to see will be an inevitable achievement. Accomplished by us, The People.

Reparations

Why advocate for reparations?

  • We advocate for reparations for all Black Americans due to the economic and financial gains made off of the labor of the descendants (slaves) of current Black Americans as well as the callously exploited labor of uneducated and illiterate sharecroppers after the practice of slavery was formally ended in the U.S. 

  • We advocate for reparations for all Black Americans due to the unlawful legislative and social practices of Jim Crow Laws that legally denied housing, voting rights, jobs, loans, education, career opportunities and various other basic freedoms that would cripple Black America for generations to come. 

Reparations We Advocate For 

 

  • Government land distribution for Black Americans via the Bureau of Land Management. 

  • Free education at any HBCU for every Black American. 

  • A one-time $10,000 USD payment to every Black American to be put into bonds to accrue interest for at least 10 years.
