Richmond, Va. – Two new billboards along Interstate 95 near Chamberlayne Ave. are grabbing the attention of drivers, according to WTVR.

“We Need Your Help to RECLAIM Education and STOP The Negro Project!” the billboard reads.

“I’m asking myself what exactly is ‘The Negro Project’, it certainly got my attention, now I want to know what’s behind this,” Richmonder Lisa Hunt said.

The Virginia Christian Alliance, a pro-life organization, put up the billboards as a way to advertise an upcoming class.

“The billboard is doing exactly what’s intended to do, catch attention and encourage people to come out and learn what is ‘The Negro Project,’”Virginia Christian Alliance board member Terry Beatley said. “[It] is actually the name of Planned Parenthood’s, 1939 very methodical strategy, to drastically reduce the black reproductive rate.”

He said his hour-long class is designed to offer alternatives to abortion.
