About Us

Together we can work for justice. Together we can lift each other up. Together we can change our community. Together we can change our country. Together we can change our world. But only TOGETHER.  

A Lifestyle

Burque Against Racism (B.A.R.) is committed to fighting systematic racism. B.A.R. was started by two local entrepreneurs who are focused on Albuquerque and it’s people. B.A.R. is not affiliated with any government entity, it’s a community organization. We believe in lifting up and supporting All Black Lives in Albuquerque, and we hope you see the value in this lifestyle, too.

 

This is a lifestyle, started by two Black men committed to positive powerful change for Black Lives in Albuquerque.  The focus, to engage the community in open and honest dialogue with a goal of bringing the community together in support of Albuquerque’s Black Community.

 

We will enlist trusted & respected faces from our community to stand together, representing an inclusive and diverse front in support of Albuquerque’s Black Lives.

How we help

Support Albuquerque’s Black Community

At B.A.R. we believe in lifting up & supporting All Black Lives in Albuquerque.  In support of this mission, we are proud to announce our donations back into the community. Thank you to all that have donated to B.A.R., making this community impact possible.

ACES Tech Charter School

We have donated $1,000 to ACES Tech Charter School, a STEM-focused public charter school.  ACES provides a college readiness curriculum, with emphasis on hands-on activities that build real-world skills. ACES Tech opened in fall 2020 with its first class of 6th-grade students.  

From the Principal, Dr. Jeron Campbell, “The ACES Tech team would like to thank the Burque Against Racism (B.A.R.) organization for its generous donation. This gift will support our efforts to provide high quality online instruction to our students during the fall 2020 semester.”
