Turn your birthday into an act of reparations to African People. 

Make your birthday meaningful by asking your friends and family to donating it to the Black Power Blueprint program of the African People’s Education and Defense Fund. Ask your friends and family to donate to this incredible African economic self-empowerment program in honor of your birthday!

Turn Your Birthday into a Celebration of Hope.

When you join the campaign of Birthdays for Reparations, you are transforming your birthday into a collective celebration of hope for all of humanity. The Black Power Blueprint is led by the African working class community in North St. Louis, struggling for self-determination and power over their own lives and resources. This project represents hope and a positive future for the north side of St. Louis and for African, oppressed and colonized peoples everywhere.
