Join us in the conversation at Operation Blue Shield™ and make a difference
Operation Blue Shield, a registered 501(C)(3), is committed to creating, promoting and funding programs designed to bring about the progressive change, respect, trust and unity that our communities and our Nation so desperately need.
Our outreach programs connect, educate and empower community stakeholders (citizens, local businesses, public officials, non-profits, education, churches, first-responders and law enforcement) in a common goal of positive, forward-thinking social infrastructure changes. In doing so, we serve to unify these groups in a shared commitment to public safety, increased accessibility to homeownership, an increase in small business ownership, improved education and economic development (jobs).
Together, we can turn this around.
When we pull together as a single community, positive change happens. Strangers become neighbors and communities grow strong. This is what Operation Blue Shield is all about.
A challenge we can overcome together.
America is facing a national crisis. For decades, an underlying erosion of trust in those who protect us has revealed itself in several national tragedies. Each tragedy has fanned the flames and underscores the need for a lasting solution that will help this country move forward.
Our Nation has seen these challenges before, and the time has come to take action. Operation Blue Shield is about citizens, local government officials, law enforcement and first-responders working together collaboratively to acknowledge and resolve the issues that keep communities in conflict. Together, we can create an environment of cooperation, a shared vision of safe, thriving communities, and a better America for all.
How does this affect me?
When you get involved, either through a generous donation or even participating in local discussions, you help us create an environment of “listening and learning” so your voice can be heard and solutions are created for the greater good.
As neighborhoods respond to proactive involvement from citizens and law enforcement “working together,” we come together to create a positive environment, ripe with business growth and much-needed new job opportunities.
Creating Cities of Opportunity together.
The sacred fabric of a city is defined by its people – people working together to build strong, healthy and happy communities, thriving with new job opportunities. Although every place is unique, there is a common formula to create “Cities of Opportunity,” and that formula starts with public safety. Public safety affects every person in every community, which is why citizens, governments, law enforcement and first responders must come together to reduce crime. As crime goes down, home ownership, small business activity, tax revenue and educational opportunities increase. These positive economic conditions enable mayors and city councils to reduce spending, expand revenues and deliver the vital goods and services that all Americans want and expect. Simply put, safe neighborhoods are successful neighborhoods, and we all have a role to play.
Operation Blue Shield (OBS) addresses the problems head-on. Through local OBS chapters, we work with businesses, church leaders, government officials, first-responders and our law enforcement community engage in productive dialogue. Our community engagement outreach programs begin with long-term realistic goals and committed leadership designed to foster a healthy exchange of ideas and understanding.
