Bridging The Gap Between Our Communities and Local Law Enforcement to Prevent Gun Violence!

 BBC Upcoming Community Events 

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Building Better Communities and Faith Coalition on Gun Violence held a press conference Thursday announcing a new initiative called the Community Culture Project aimed to take action against gun violence.

“Gun violence has plagued South Carolina in the recent month and the city of Columbia alone has already seen an increase in conflict resolutions dealing with guns," Founder of BBC Perry Bradley said, "Our goal now is to help clean up and prevent gun violence. What we’ve done is we’ve combined BBC, Faith Coalition on Gun Violence, Moms Demand ActionRichland County Sheriff’s Department, City of Columbia Police Department, the Solicitor’s Office, Brady United Against Gun Violence and Our Revolution South Carolina.”

BBC Organizes it's First

Disaster Relief Volunteer Force!

      BBC knows the importance of team work. We have been organizing our Disaster Relief Volunteer Force since we learned of Hurricane Florence. Our goal is to be on standby for mobilization as a reserve to Midlands First Responders. We are equipped with lifted 4x4 trucks, flat bottom boats, power tools, etc. We have over 30 volunteers waiting to help serve the community. Our Volunteer Forces are lead by Major Melvin Whittenburg. He is a retired Major who served in the US Army. He comes with 35 years of experience and is ready to serve. Major Whittenburg is currently running for SC Secretary of State but suspended his political campaign to prepare volunteers to help in a crisis situation. Join our efforts and help your community when the time arrives.

Building Better Communities Meet With National Recording Artist "Nelly"

 Our mission is to help local communities bridge the relationships with local law enforcement and to educate, energize and empower local communities to grow economic development. BBC realizes that this upcoming election is a very important one. We have traveled around the state of SC hosting numerous Voter Registration events. Getting people out to vote has truly been a challenge. Although we have a member, Major Melvin Whittenburg, our goal is to register new potential voters. We don't push any particular party.  We came up with a plan to actually go to where the people are. For the next 2 months, we are setting up inside of concerts, festivals, etc. We invite political candidates to come out and join us for several reasons. With so much at stake, we need to know our candidates and where they stand. This year BBC plans to attempt to register as many new potential voters as possible and by any means necessary. The United Music Festival was a prime example of the events we are attending. As concert goers come in, we give them education materials on any candidate that provides them with material and we ask them if they are register to vote. Last night we reached potential voters from the age 18 to 63. It was amazing to discuss politics with so many different people. There were Democrats, Republicans, Independants, etc. BBC is able to reach out to SC citizens and learn what they are concerned about in this upcoming election. Two candidates were present yesterday. They were Major Melvin Whittenburg and Diondra Love. Major Whittenburg is running for SC Secretary of State and Diondra Love is running for York County Probate Judge. BBC was able to meet up with the performing artist and introduced them to Major Whittenburg. They were proud of his accomplishments and his vision for the SC Secretary of State Office. Major Whittenburg expressed his vision that "Voting is an American Right that ALL need to exercise. Our focus is to reach the younger generation to get them voting and participating in government at ALL levels." As Major Whittenburg expressed to the concert goers, "Our goal is to get them voting and not to push any particular party affiliation." National recording artist and actor, Nelly, poses with Major Whittenburg while holding his campaign flyer. Join our movement to get South Carolinians to the polls.
