African-American boys and men, particularly ones who have grown up fatherless and without positive male role models, are often in need of guidance, information and resources to be successful in life. It is important for individuals, businesses and local organizations to support the needs of African-American males who want to better their lives and become productive and positive members of their communities.
The S.O.S. rally will include several panel discussions on topics of interest including supporting the development and learning of African-American males in metro Atlanta, the responsibilities of law enforcement officer and the rights of individuals, supporting those who are already in the criminal justice system and recommendations to optimize opportunities for African-American youth. The event will also feature special performances and a community resource fair.
Media are invited to cover the event and interview the speakers, organization representatives and attendees.
