THE TRANSITION
Shanduke McPhatter is the Founder and Executive Director of the not for profit, Gangstas Making Astronomical Community Changes Inc. cites his experience in prison as the reason why he became a community activist. After being convicted for a Robbery he did not commit as a teen Shanduke became engulfed into the prison lifestyle.</p> <p>While in a state prison Shanduke saw a little boy (eventually incarcerated for 31yrs) running to his father (mentor during his 1st/2nd incarceration), another prisoner, for the first time. This moment became his reason to break the cycle of incarceration and violence as he did not want his kids or any child to visit their parent in prison.</p> <p>This realization is why he focuses on helping the youth in the community, while also being the reason to fall into the cycle of violence again.

Our Approach

OUR APPROACH

THE POISON

Schools have the most violence and dropouts. Congregation and recruitment of gangs begins in the schools. Parents are unaware that their child may be in gang or don’t always understand the seriousness of their daily activities. The kids don’t have trust in the law enforcement and most authority figures. The young people look to the ones readily available that are supplying them with support and resources for their leadership, protection, and guidance. Most youth nonprofits are following a set pattern and are ran by people who never experienced the street life in someway, therefore the young people don’t feel like they are useful to them. Recent released are returning to the streets without a changed mindset and tend to recruit young people into their lifestyle.
TRUANCY
ABANDONMENT
DESTRUCTION

THE ANTIDOTE

Education and train teachers and school staff to identify the changing gang trends. Establish a mandated mentorship program for the high risk students.<br /> Show gangs members how to get out of gangs and get the gang leaders to let them out. Expand our communication with the youth and public to ask for help i.e Dear Big Homie. Grab the attention of the street leaders to become now positive influences for the cure. Helping young people understand their environment and the assistance available. Encourage, educate and train parents on checking their homes regularly. Respond immediately after gang violence to prevent retaliation.
