Total Action For Progress (TAP) states on its website that it’s vision and mission statements are as follows:

Our Mission:
TAP helps individuals and families achieve economic and personal independence…
Our Vision:
To create …a community which achieves their highest economic and social potentials by each individual having the opportunity to reach the full extent of his or her capabilities, and to participate in the American way of life.

TAP’s working against the community’s efforts to purchase the historic Dumas Hotel that TAP paid nothing for is the last straw. TAP used the black community’s history, culture and dollars to raise $4.2 million dollars to renovate the Dumas.

This is clearly TAP not supporting the community. If TAP is not going to support the community buying the Dumas then we should all NO LONGER SUPPORT TAP. It is time for TAP to go away if it is not going to honor its vision and mission.

I will NO LONGER SUPPORT TAP nor its budget line item support in the City’s annual budget of hundreds of thousands of dollars for more than 20 years.

Please join me in sending a clear message to TAP, Roanoke City Council, and others that we will no longer support TAP or their support of TAP if the agency refuse to sell the Dumas to the community and thereby support the community’s right to self-determination.
