James Garrett, ICSSBM Executive Director, states “Young Black males need to understand how to advocate for themselves and understand State government and the legislative process. The statewide Young Black Males Matter Day will inform and enlighten black males and hopefully motivate them to increased civic participation”.

The ICSSBM has contacted leaders from the communities of Anderson, Bloomington, Evansville, Fort Wayne, Gary, Hammond, Indianapolis, Merrillville, Michigan City, and South Bend to help draw 250 young men from across the state to attend this event.
