                ​wo new faces will appear this year for two open seats, [that will be vacated by Willie Wade and Joe Davis who is candidate for Mayor] inside the City of Milwaukee's Common Council chambers this year.

These two new faces are really not new at all. Both, David Crowley and Chevy Johnson both have served Milwaukee and the community very well and effectively-- and now both are taking another bold step in the political area of becoming Alderman for the 7th and 2nd Districts.

It is refreshing to see these two young men who aspire to take on the pressing issues that face our community. 

FELLAS Lifestyle applaud their courage and commitment to our community and the City of Milwaukee.

on ongoing research project housed at the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee’s Research Center for Urban Education Leadership Development. 

We initiated the research project in response to Community Advocates Public Policy Institute’s efforts to coordinate and convene Milwaukee-area stakeholders to develop a unified and comprehensive approach for positively effecting policy, practice, and research to improve the lives of Boys and Young Men of Color within the greater Milwaukee region. 

The broader objective of the assessment was to determine a process for evaluating the effects of BMOC programming across sectors.

Man to Man: Heart to Heart

Roosevelt, a long-time smoker, had a heart attack at age 45. He endured six surgeries, including heart bypass surgery to fix the damage to his heart caused by smoking. Now smoke-free, Roosevelt encourages others to quit smoking as a way to reduce their risk of heart disease.

"A heart attack feels like a hand inside squeezing your heart," he said. "It's like the worst Charley horse you can imagine—in your heart."

About 1 in 5 African American adults smokes cigarettes.5 CDC's Tips from Former Smokers campaign recently shined a spotlight on this statistic and the links between smoking and heart disease among African American men.

"If you have loved ones who care about you, they will support you. Take it one day at a time," Roosevelt said.

This approach can work not only for people who want to quit smoking, but for those who are trying to eat better, exercise, and control their high blood pressure—all ways to help reduce the chances of heart attack and stroke.
Milwaukee County creates an Office of African-American Affairs to examine racial inequities in the county and promote equal opportunities for blacks. The resolution drafted by Rainey cites other studies that concluded Wisconsin is ranked last in the nation for overall well-being of African-American children and that a black-white educational achievement gap is growing for both reading and mathematics.

​2nd District Supervisor Khalif Rainey's proposal to create this office was a bold move, but needed. "Racial and ethnic disparities exist in Milwaukee and are having a harmful effect on families and communities," Abele said.

Abele cited an Economic Policy Institute study this year that showed Wisconsin had the highest unemployment rate in the nation for African-Americans at 19.9%. "That figure is much worse in many Milwaukee neighborhoods, where the unemployment rate for African-American men is more than 50%," he said. Milwaukee Ald. Willie Wade and state Rep. Leon Young (D-Milwaukee) both supported Rainey on this newly created initiative. 

Wisconsin has the highest African-American male incarceration rate of all states, "with over half of African-American men in their 30s in Milwaukee County having served prison time," the resolution says. Nearly 70% of Wisconsin's African-American citizens reside in Milwaukee County.
The key strategies for dealing with the crisis in the African-American community, Rainey said at the time, "are jobs, equal opportunities and economic development, not social services."

In his five years as executive, Abele said he has committed to focusing on services that empower people.
"Our investments in job training programs like UpLift MKE that serves Milwaukee's most disadvantaged neighborhoods, a job training center at the House of Correction, a $1.6 million economic development fund on the near west side, and the Fatherhood Initiative that helps men get the skills they need to be involved parents are important and meaningful, but clearly they are not enough," he said in a statement.
