"Where ALL the GOOD Lives"
Why is it important...
All you need to do is embark on a Google image search of North Tulsa and it becomes crystal clear that ILoveNorthTulsa.Com is critical for our community...for our CITY. The problem is not negative or accurate coverage of the "bad" that happens in our community, the problem is the absence of a collective stage where the "good" can shine, live, thrive and multiply. We need a place where the GOOD can live, that will shine a light on what is RIGHT in our community. Growth comes from focusing on strength and not weakness. How can our children love where they live if they are constantly bombarded with images that say otherwise. Instead of waiting for someone else to build the stage, YOU can help build it through the ILoveNorthTulsa.Com movement. WE are the leaders we've been waiting on!!
What we are...
We are a collective space for where our communities compassion, intelligence, creativity and soul shines through...
We are a living breathing testament to the sacrifice and bravery of those that have come before us...
We are a negativity free zone...
We are a voice for justice and equality to ALL races and ethnicity...
We are a progression and growth tool for everyone in our community regardless of race or ethnicity...
We are believers in our children, we not only believe but EXPECT them to do great things and we will be there to tell the world all about it...
We are uniters and not dividers, in order for Tulsa to be a World Class city, Greatness in all areas of the city must be represented.
What we are NOT...
We are not a space for negativity to flourish and breed. This does not mean that we will ignore disparity in our community however our approach will be to build and grow through focuses what is RIGHT...
We are not an African-American movement. North Tulsa's demographics are evolving daily and we are a movement for ALL people of good will and like mind...
We are not a young person's movement, our content, merchandise and community engagement will have multigenerational appeal...
We are not an outlet for old grievance to be rehashed and debated, we are leaning forward in every way...
How will it work...
