In 2019, the PCI founder lost his job because of Covid. He started to look for a job applying many times to multiple jobs in the area but he kept getting denied and was not given an opportunity to occupy a role, not because of his qualifications but because of his name and skin color
While he was going through these struggles of finding a job, he really started to realize the challenges and adversities that Black African Americans and other minorities pass through before they can establish themselves in a community.
Out of this realization, the idea of Pointters Community Initiatives was born. PCI was created to build a community that is more inclusive, & equitable in the Fox Valley through advancing social change & racial equity.
Over time PCI founder used his leadership and unity skills to bring together the minorities and challenge the system. He grasped every opportunity he could for the nonprofit organization building it into what it is today. This is the story and the birth of PCI.
