The program demanded things like freedom, full employment, reparations, decent housing, honest education, an end to police brutality, fair trials, and for all basic needs to be met.

With this Black constitutional order, the Panthers envisioned a government where our people are treated equally. They worked hard to make that vision a reality. And that vision still lives on today, with modern programs drawing inspiration from what the Panthers created.
