Research, even anonymous is difficult to come by in our community. Black faith and secular communities alike are skeptical of researchers because of a long history of deceit. Part of what sets BMC apart from others is the trust of the people. Thousands of people have participated in our research, trusting us to share their stories, honor their voice, protect their information and produce excellent resources for change. We don't take this lightly and it is our greatest honor to be trusted with the voice and story of Black people and communities.
