What is #1in3? The #1in3 Campaign is a grassroots movement to raise public awareness that One in Three Black Males in America will be incarcerated in their lifetime.
What's at stake? A third of black males are under correctional supervision, or essentially "missing" from everyday society. Thus, increasing our rates of disenfranchisement, and lowering our earning capacity; placing Black Communities at a disadvantage -- politically and economically.
What's the plan? The #1in3 campaign harnesses the power of storytelling to engage, inspire action and grow support while showing the black male from our perspective. By encouraging black males in diversity to share their stories, and start a new and more personal conversation about black males in our society, the #1in3 Campaign will help generate resources for our communities.
