SAVING OUR SONS (S.O.S.)

Saving Our Sons has been a national phenomenon aimed at examining active solutions to assist our boys of color.  In 2010, Councilmember Mike Gipson of the city of Carson sparked the city to examine boys of color in Carson under Save Our Sons.  This monumental event gave attention to the needs of young men in Carson and surrounding cities such as Compton and Long Beach.

Mike Gipson no longer serves as Councilmember of the City of Carson.  He has broadened his leadership as Assemblymember of the 64th District, which includes Carson, Compton, Gardena, Harbor Gateway, Lynwood, North Long Beach, Rancho Dominguez, South Los Angeles, Torrance, Watts/Willowbrook and Wilmington.  With this new leadership position, Challenging Minds has partnered with Assemblymember Gipson to continue the work to respond with solutions to examine best practices, resources, and strategies of success to motivate our boys of color and enhance the skills of stakeholders and caretakers.
