Our Mission

To facilitate the healing of the Black community in preparation for racial reconciliation.

Who is SYS?

Say Yes Sir is a social justice ministry committed to racial reconciliation.  The thing that sets The Say Yes Sir Initiative (SYS) apart from other social justice initiatives is simply how we define justice.  At SYS we believe justice requires a primary focus on the restoration of relationships not punishment.
