OPERATION STAR POWER
Organized by: Reginald Lott
In Chicago more children and teens die due to gun violence than in any undeclared war zone in the world, deaths that can be prevented with education and opportunity which breaks the cycle of violence and crime. I'm asking you to put on your cape and cowel and become a crime fighter by supporting OPERATION STAR POWER by donating $1 or more you can transform the lives of Chicago's inner city youth. The plan is... OPERATION STAR POWER is a $10 million dollar VIOLENCE PREVENTION and INTERVENTION PROGRAM that uses 12 rap artist who have an ASSOCIATE'S, BACHELOR'S or MASTER'S degree to host a 12 month speaking lector to get kids to take education serious. Guys like Lil Wayne, 2 Chains, Puffy, Ludacris, etc; all have college educations. Along with the monthly lecture we would rehad 20 abandoned buildings in the two target communities (South Shore and Roseland) where we would teach 500 youth from each area soft and hard skills like hygiene, the importance of being on time, how to speak to customers, lawncare and snow removal, culinary arts, nail and hair styling, etc; three days a week but 6 days a week the location would double as a business that not only employes that youth but makes him or her part owner. Once the youth has acquired a degree or trade certification their percentage of the business is cashed out to them for the sole purpose of starting their own business. We target the ones on parol with gun cases, burglry charges, young parents, I MEAN THE MOST CHALLENGING and turn them into educated entranpaunors. THINK OF THE IMPACT. If your wondering about my credentials just look at SAFE PASSAGE as co-author of the program and one of four people who implemented it (with LaVonte Stewart, Dorothy Tompkins -Washinton and Syncere Fisher), I can point you to a successful program with over $50 Million invested into it by City of Chicago, credited for reducing crime CITYWIDE by 20 percent.
