Event brings area men together for leadership

Thu Feb 11, 2016
Branden Johnson, event coordinator, said the goal is to bring local community and business leaders together to network and share ideas about how they help.

"It's pretty organic. It's more of a project than a program," he said. "We want to get more men involved in young people's lives, and black men in particular."

Mentorship and leadership efforts for Longview's young people is one goal, Johnson said.

"We want to help provide access to ways they can volunteer," he said.

Johnson said those who are not able to attend Thursday's night's event — but are still interested in finding out how they can be a part of this initiative — can call him at (430) 558-0058.
