A Covenant for Jamaica?

A group of well known African Americans, led by broadcaster Tavis Smiley, met some time ago to come up with a list of issues that black Americans could grasp onto and work on in order to better life for them. Take a look at their site and the covenants below. Perhaps if tailored to Jamaica’s needs this could also help us. What do you think?

Covenant I
Securing the Right to Healthcare and Well-Being

Covenant II
Establishing a system of public education in which all children achieve at high levels and reach their full potential.

Covenant III
Correcting the system of unequal justice.

Covenant IV
Fostering accountable community-centred policing

Covenant V
Ensuring broad access to affordable neighbourhoods that connect to opportunity

Covenant VI
Claiming our democracy

Covenant VII
Strengthening our rural roots

Covenant VIII
Accessing good jobs, wealth and economic prosperity

Covenant IX
Assuring environmental justice for all

Covenant X
Closing the racial digital deivide

Here's the link to their site:
