What Is A Committee
By Our Blood is the political action committee that holds elected officials accountable for not having a pro-Freedmen agenda. We are By Our Blood because the United States of America was built by our ancestor’s blood, sweat, and tears. All American privileges are a result of the blood of Black American Freedmen. When an immigrant says they built this country tell them:
“This nation was built By OUR Blood!“
What We Do
We work to Eliminate obstacles keeping Black American families from political and economic power. We support electing Candidates committed to passing policies that benefit Black American Freedmen and politicians already in office who failed to pass policies supporting Black American Freedmen. Political action committees are 527 tax-exempt organizations created to influence elections, nominations, or defeat candidates running for federal, state, or public office. Political committees buy campaign ads. Campaign ads to either support or oppose candidates (or legislation).
About By Our Blood Founder
Political activist and future billionaire Brooke S. Sinclair is one of Houston’s most influential entrepreneurs. Sinclair has used her network to fight bigotry and exploitation from Caucasian or immigrant venture capitalists. Through her network, Sinclair has provided hundreds of Houston tech founders with access to capital from high-profile Silicon Valley venture capitalists while protecting founders from predatory investors. We credit Sinclair for her active role in working around anti-black hate from venture capitalists, tech accelerators, and limited partners.
Sinclair established herself as an outspoken advocate for equality after dealing with bigotry and hatred from racist venture capitalists and pre-seed tech accelerators. She released the discriminating emails that led to the destruction of the racist startup pitch competition StartHereNow. Her work provided Houston tech founders access to capital from high-profile Silicon Valley venture capitalists and protected Freedmen tech founders from predators in the tech industry. She guided preseed accelerators, angel investors, and tech startup hubs The Cannon and Founder Institute on matters of diversity, equity, and inclusion in addition to writing the “Top 25 VCs Least Likely to Invest in Founders of Color.” She’s also a regular contributor to AfroSapiophile and Writers and Editors of Color Magazine. She co-founded the Bias Rehab Center and wrote “The 11 Steps to Rehab Bias.”
Sinclair volunteers for IDiF the Center of Innovation for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Finance. A nonprofit organization that wants to drive equitable access to capital, Sinclair uses her expertise to help the organization achieve its strategic plan to accelerate economic justice and power to invest in Black American Freedmen first. Black American Freedmen are estimated to reach $0 net worth by 2053. Not people of color, minorities, or women. Sinclair uses her life experiences to influence iDiF’s Board and Advisors of mostly first and second-generation immigrants. In 2020 Google said Black founders raised less than 1% of all venture capital dollars invested from the $40+ billion raised in the U.S. This disparity has not only hindered innovation, but also limited opportunities for economic opportunity, wealth generation, and upward mobility. Black American Freedmen have an average net worth of $11,000 compared to $144,000 for white Americans. Only 2% of venture capital firms have blacks in senior or decision-making positions. However, 1.4% of the $82.2 Trillion in U.S.-based assets are managed by anti-black immigrants posing as “people of color.”
Sinclair graduated with a Master of Science in Project Management and received a Bachelor of Arts in Organizational & Corporate Communications from the University of Houston and is an active member of the National Black Chambers of Commerce, Black Girl Ventures, and For(bes) the Culture. Sinclair also champions secured borders and immigration enforcement.
