Welcome to LEAP
LEAP is a social welfare organization that aims to change the narrative surrounding the Black experience. Our focus is on the lived experiences of the Descendants of U.S. Chattel Slavery--American Freedmen. We believe that centering the reparations discussion around lineage is necessary for having the right conversations about the debt that is owed.
Redefining Social Welfare
LEAP is committed to redefining the way we approach social welfare. Our goal is to empower the descendants of U.S. Chattel Slavery by providing them with the resources and support they need to succeed. We believe that by focusing on lineage, we can create real change and make a meaningful impact on the lives of those we serve.
