Demanding Recognition for Positive Figures in History
We live in a world where kindness and morality have taken a backseat to profit and politics. John the Baptist Boulevard started as a movement in Jacksonville, Florida in hopes of inspiring citizens and neighbors to do better, be better and choose to live a life driven by by Christian ideals.
John the Baptist is a significant individual to Christians of all denominations. His message was for all to hear, regardless of wealth or status. John the Baptist spoke of better things to come. He called for all mankind to reflect on their wrongdoings and shortcomings and strive to do better and be better.
Bring John the Baptist Blvd to Your City
Across the country we recognize important, famous and influential individuals who have shaped our society. We have renamed streets and highways to recognize their contributions to our communities and country. There are streets named for Mark Hamill, Rihanna, Bob Hope, Beyonce, Betty White and Hugh Hefner. Why do we limit this recognition to secular figures and celebrities?
Join the movement and take action. John the Baptist Blvd offers a variety of Community Resources as a starting place for a movement in your city.
Right now, communities across the country are struggling with the morality of our nation’s history and the way that manifests in our culture today. John the Baptist is a symbolic figure for washing away sins and repenting. He also calls us, even today, to do better in our daily lives.
Many cities are already revisiting the names of schools, streets and other prominent sites that feature names associated with racism and oppression. John the Baptist Blvd believes John the Baptist should be considered as an option during these renaming discussions.
