Our Advocacy Vehicle:

"It's About Time"

We invite you to go to our website, 1619inc.org and read this brief commentary on the importance of advocacy especially for civil and human rights issues.

We are convinced that change cannot and will not happen unless people are motivated and inspired to become change makers.

It also stands to reason that motivation and inspiration cannot happen without first acquiring the necessary information. Once that happens, there is hope that human beings can and will become motivated and inspired to act.

Dissemination of important information is the first rule in effective advocacy which is the reason that we recently acquired an emergency hazardous material vehicle formerly owned and operated from 1989 until 2019 by the Richmond Fire Department. We are in the process of repurposing this extraordinary vehicle to convert it into a mobile advocacy and information platform. Once this completed we will travel to where people live, worship, work, or gather, in small and large groups for entertainment and recreation and present to them vital information regarding the advocacy issues which we embrace. See our Advocacy Projects on this website. Although we live in a country where there is instant communication, far too often important information is kept from us in the hopes that we will “Sleep the Night Away”.

Exterior Improvements

​We plan to purchase and install an electronic messaging center (ECM) as illustrated below on the outside of the truck. The ECM will enhance and support our advocacy because we can include visual media on the ECM because as we all know, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. We will also sell advertising to be displayed in the ECM which will give us revenue to fund our advocacy.
