Londrelle Hall

info:
Today we #highlight Londrelle Hall, 28 and Ray Mills, 29, who have remained motivated by their mission to change the image of African-American men after the killing of 17 year old Mike Brown in Ferguson, MO. For them this mission meant running through five states: Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, and Missouri in an effort to not run from their problems but, take on the racial problems of America. Growing up in America as a black man isn't easy. The sentencing Project states that, 1 in every 3 black males born today can expect to go to prison at some point in their life, compared with 1 in every 6 Latino males, and 1 in every 17 white males, if current incarceration trends continue.Londrelle Hall said, "I had a reason to run, not to run from my problems, but to run towards a problem and run for the problems of the world and the problems of America and what's going on now." On Monday, November 3 both young men embarked on this amazing journey. On Sunday, November 23 what was once a distant goal became a touching reality as the men arrived in Ferguson. They ran over 540 miles from Atlanta to Ferguson in hopes of making a difference. This a great example of being the change you wish to see. They were met with an outpouring of emotion as they knelt at the site where Brown was shot by police officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9. “It hurts my heart that our youth think that just because they’re black and young they could be killed in the street at the hands of somebody that was supposed to protect them,” Hall told The Huffington Post on Sunday after arriving in Ferguson. “After Michael Brown, I felt compelled to change the face of the young black man, to show you don’t always have to be gunned down.”Londrelle and Ray we salute you! Continue to be leaders for other young people to follow. You could have easily turned to violence but, instead you turned to your ACTIONS. You're the perfect example of a peaceful protest. You made a national statement and set out to do exactly what you said you would. You've touched so many others along the way. The work doesn't stop here. Let's continue to run for the justice this country so desperately needs. You are officially apart of our Candid Society!

E.N.D.IT! & C.H.I.L.L

info:
The truth is, “Everybody’s Not Doing it!” But we never hear stories of those few braving societal pressures from their peers. Call it an extreme and rare case of determination or strong-will, Sonia Dupree knows it takes support from the community and education to prevent at-risk behaviors in our teens. Behaviors such as low self-esteem, sex before marriage, drug and alcohol use, submitting to negative peer/media pressures and low expectations requires a program like E.N.D.IT! to help our teens succeed.“The world, through popular culture, is so bold and relentless in planting seeds of destruction for our youth. We can't just keep reading the statistics and shaking our heads, what are we going to do?” Sonia launched E.N.D.IT in Port Saint Lucie, FL as an all girls program in 2010 and two years later created a boys division through leadership, scholarship and community service. Later, she and the teens were able to C.H.I.L.L (Choosing How I Live Life) with weekly summer camp sessions providing fresh media alternatives, trendy modesty fashions, drama performances, and quarterly community service projects.One of E.N.D.IT!’s many success stories includes a girl named *Leah who was being pressured to sell marijuana in middle school by her close circle of friends. Sonia testifies that “after a 4- week encounter with God thru E.N.D. IT!, Leah made straight A's on her first semester report card, had no behavioral issues at school, changed her circle of influence, and uses the cooking skills she learned over the summer to help her grandmother in the kitchen.” Together with its dynamic and committed volunteers, and sponsors, E.N.D. IT! has set course to be a vessel of change for this generation of youth – locally, then nationally and worldwide.Visit http://www.everybodyisnotdoingit.org to support our youth. Don’t just shake your head in dismay, E.N.D.IT!
