"The issues we face are not black or white but American.
Together we can make a difference.
There is nothing we can't do"
-Terry Hardy, Founder and CEO
A MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO
Violence is a big issue in Chicago which is not always physical. The trauma youth and adults experience negatively impact the quality of life for all citizens. Young people need opportunities that showcase their full potential.
What you see as you ride through any community (no matter how good or bad) is a manifestation of the level of education in that community.
My observation inspired me to center the focus of World of Soul® Motorcycle Community around social and cultural reconciliation.
Because education is the fundamental thrust behind all human movement people move in accordance to their knowledge.
I cannot think of no greater cause to advocate for using motorcycling as the platform while encouraging the riding community, a subculture to surface on the issue in support of the next generation.
I believe education and the application of the things learned is the key to solving many problems plaguing communities of color.
Education is not a black or white issue, but an American issue which we can all come together to help reverse negative trends.
What would it look like if we came together in support of Chicago's youth.
I invite you to join the movement toward demonstrating what a World of Soul® could be.
Therefore, Ride for CHANGE Ride for HOPE™ is the movement to a destination World of Soul®.
These are my thoughts as of today - subject to modification.
