Huddle Up! HOPE for Prisoners weekly Tuesday Night Huddle Up tomorrow evening, May 31 from 6:00-7:30 pm PST. Join us via Zoom or watch on HFP Facebook Live. We will be streaming the segment live into the Nevada Department of Corrections.
Honored to have my dear friend, brother and subject matter expert, Mr. Antong Lucky join us from Dallas TX.
Antong Lucky, was the founder and former leader of the Dallas 415 Bloods Gang, is now the President at Urban Specialists At an early age, Lucky was embroiled in a life of crime, gang violence and drug dealing that ultimately landed him in prison. In prison Antong denounced his gang affiliation, started to read a lot of books to educate himself and began working to unite the rival gangs. Antong quickly rose to become one of the most respected and sought-after mentors in prison. His teachings of conflict resolution taught fellow inmates how not to use violence as their primary language but instead practice peace. Antong has spent the last twenty years working to end violence in communities by training OGs (original Gangstas) across the country to effectively mentor youth away from a life of gangs, crime, and violence. Most recently Antong trains police officers on effective community engagement strategies. Antong is a sought-out speaker on issues of eradicating violence, Re-entry, criminal justice reform and bridging the gap between law enforcement and community. Antong is Co Chair Of The National Organization Heal, Member of the Board Directors at The StandTogether Foundation, President of Good Urban Development, President of The Bishop Omar School of Entrepreneurship- And now Author of his new memoir, A Redemptive Path Forward – a journey of his life.
You can purchase Antong’s memoir here, or send this must read to anyone you know that is incarcerated.
I look forward to seeing you on the zoom call.
