About Save Our Sons

Save our Sons started by Melvin W. Carter Jr. two decades is still at it. SOS continues to touch the lives of young men struggling to avoid inner city traps, snares and pitfalls. SOS spearheads it’s community driven Stop the Bleeding/Start the Breathing-Crime Prevention Initiatives by recruiting and enlisting community partners. Partners include (but in no way are limited to) local elders, neighbors, faith communities, schools, elected officials, other like heartened organizations, law enforcement, corrections and any and everyone with a heart for best outcomes. Over the past two years Save Our Sons has worked to publish the SOS Bulletin Series, 7 workbook lessons from the core teachings of SOS. In our publications and in our all services we work to challenge the notion that gang involvement, drugs and violence are the solution to the problems that young men we meet are born into. When we challenge these notions, they listen. When we support these youth to investigate these questions we launch a more powerful journey within them than the one that calls them to the street. Please join us in this work. In 2010, Melvin received the Natalie S. Bimel Award from the Annie E. Casey Foundation for Outstanding Contributions to Juvenile Detention Reform by a Community Member for his work advancing social justice for communities of color.
