Emerging 100 of Atlanta Launches #Emerge Campaign To Encourage Community Action
New Social Campaign Aims to Convey Strong, Successful & Stylish Images of African American Males
ATLANTA, NOVEMBER 9, 2015 – A recent study concluded that young people without role models area 67% more likely to be unemployed, 50% more likely to abuse drugs and one in four also lacked a sense of identity. The need for more role models and positive images, specifically within the African American community, is the motivation behind #Emerge – a new initiative launched by the Emerging 100, the young professional auxiliary of the 100 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc. The campaign will officially launch on Thursday, November 12 at 7 pm at the W Hotel Midtown (188 14th Street, Atlanta, GA 30361), where the organization will be featured as part of the W Hotel’s “Locals We Love” Campaign.
