Mission & Vision
N’COBRA PHL’s mission is to establish a reparations commission at the hyper-local level to support the redress and recompenses of the current populace of “Black” and “African-American” people who descend from Negro and Colored Americans in the United States. N’COBRA PHL’s vision is to see their peoplehood be defined and developed by them, for them. N’COBRA PHL believes true reparation supports their succession, sovereignty and self-determination as necessary to their peoplehood, and that reparations must include the allodial return of their seized and stolen land, redress from the capital of their seized and stolen property and assets, recompensing the value of their forced and coerced labor, and the repair of their peoplehood.
To their peoplehood and self-determination, N’COBRA PHL is focused on:
Restoring our L.I.F.E. | Liberty • Independence • Freedom • Empowerment
Restoring our systems nationally and internationally socially, economically, and politically
Revitalizing nature, natural organic systems, and the ecology of the environment.
Recompensing and resourcing our capital reserves and banks.
Reclaiming our ethnic nationalism, nationhood, and nationality.
Rebuilding our sanctity, sanctuary, statehood and sovereignty.
Returning our lives back to their continental consciousness.
Remembering the pantheon of our ancestors.
Rebuilding our nationhood in the image of our people.
Rehabilitating our people.
PHL Agenda Items
N’COBRA PHL understands that federal reparations will have its distinctions at the regional and local levels, and does the work of clarifying those distinctions for Greater Philadelphia and Greater Pennsylvania in the effort to establish the foundation for reparation at the local level. N’COBRA PHL brings lived experience, informed data, and robust study and research on the subject, with deference to Philadelphia, as its members understand the complex intersectionality of the redress group living in the commonwealth, and the issues affecting them that vary in nuance.
N’COBRA PHL calls for government officials and legal authorities to keep the Philadelphia community knowledgeable, educated, and informed. Its work in that effort is to create and support innovative government and policy transparency and systems that make news and information more accessible to the public. In that effort, N’COBRA PHL engages its community to participate in the political process to create consensus for policy needs. In order to accomplish these goals, N’COBRA PHL works with willing government officials and legal authorities to increase the access, awareness, and application of resources that individuals and institutions of the community need to thrive.
N’COBRA PHL understands that the Philadelphia legislature must:
Keep the community privy to information coming through the pipeline, helping create preparedness for the infrastructure of our community’s livelihood.
Protect and support the people’s constitutional rights, fighting for the people’s interests in spite of their own or the interest of their party as we become the true constituency.
Help to fortify local department stores and produce markets, provided that citizens have access to their needs during and beyond times of crisis.
Educate communities on how they can, will, or may be zoned or re-districted.
Develop a municipally administered telecommunication service that provides phone and internet service to citizens at a low cost premium.
Ensure that people’s municipal services are secure, such as:
Protecting air quality and clean water systems;
Public trash and recycling receptacles are not overflowing;
Support legislation that supports a healthy environmental ecology;
Academic and education needs are properly funded, serviced, and resourced;
Proper medical and medicinal treatment;
Adequate funding for local fire engines;
Law enforcement officers are properly trained, supervised, and disciplined.
This work lives at the helm of imaging an evolved form of social security for our community’s:
Equity, equality, and human ecology
Innovated and advanced architectural pedagogy for climate change adaptations
Public school educational and academic reform
Community policing and police reform
Cyber security, widespread telecommunications and internet fidelity
Improved policing systems and armed forces public relations
Hyper-local, domestic, and international diplomacy and peacekeeping
N’COBRA PHL believes that the legislature and community must rehabilitate, including exonerating and expunging the records pertaining to the subject hereof, those within this community who have been affected and effected by the epidemic of substance abuse, particularly the opioids heroin, cocaine and crack-cocaine, manufactured, managed and militarized through the United States’ “War on Drugs” to which enforced unequal and unjust racial and class based sentences thereafter;
We must also support the rehabilitation and exoneration of those affected in this community, including record expungement specifically in relation to the subject of imprisonment, for the commercial use and/or consumption of cannabis or “marijuana” with direct reparations apportioned to those now returning to society, including the expungement of their records;
We must finally rehabilitate the people and communities affected and effected by the alcoholism that liquor-lining, fortified by the red-lining of communities, that targeted their neighborhoods and:
Created high densities of liquor stores in neighborhoods with no deference to the proximity to schools, parks and recreational spaces in the communities;
Drove businesses including retailers and markets from those communities, decimating the local economy and creating local food deserts to which contributed to deepened poverty and degradation in those communities’ health and wellness;
Created high densities of liquor stores within close proximity to homes, disrupting the family unit and functionality as alcoholism, coupled with the “War on Drugs” is, in large, a chronological consequence of poverty and joblessness, to which liquor-lining, and red-lining, directly influenced.
N’COBRA PHL believes that protecting mother nature is our foremost priority. As children to this land and our ability to go green² and invest into renewable and clean energy developments support our effective protection of the environment and preserve our economies, N’COBRA PHL believes in the systems of solar, water, and wind energy; clean and sustainable systems of water capture and filtration; community composting, reimagined at the production and consumer levels; climate action living adjacent to environmental conservation, reforesting, animal protection, and whole environmental ecosystems of autochthony; and more. N’COBRA PHL works to develop scientific pedagogy rooted in natural and organic systems so that technology advances our natural and organic abilities as a supplement rather than a substitute or subtraction.
N’COBRA PHL sees this scientific pedagogy rooted in natural and organic systems:
Investing into real-estate for natural and mineral resources.
Supporting ecologists with volunteers, advocacy, manpower and resources.
Developing systems of equitable economics and environmental ecology = green².
Educating the community on effective ways to reduce, reuse, recycle, and compost.

The N’COBRA PHL believes that ecologists and economists must work together to build and operate more accountable systems of business and trade that support environmental ecology and economic equity. N’COBRA PHL’s purpose in this area is to develop and implement the practice of an economic ecosystem that supports the natural and organic ecology of the environment responsible for the means of production at scale for hyper-local, regional, domestic and national ecologies. Supporting the means of production supports the ability to produce, and consume. N’COBRA PHL’s mission that vein is to sustain and progress mineral resources; advance sustainable product chain infrastructures; inspire clean manufacturing, wholesaling, distribution and retailing; support individuals in the acquisition of sustainable and adequate technology to consciously produce, trade or merchandise and consume; and advise the system of environmental ecology and economic equity.
