AMWS, Oct. 14, 2015, Atlanta --  Youth Achievers USA Institute, a national 501c3 public charity, will invest in low income youth beneficiaries to support their economic inclusion.   During the October 10, 2015 A BLUEPRINT FOR ENDING POVERTY AND WANT has been published and made available to supporters of a MILLION MAN MOVEMENT.

The "JUSTICE OR ELSE" theme for the October 10, 2015 20th Anniversary of The Million Man has drawn initial support from local groups such as the Atlanta Local Organizing Committee.  The Reverend Samuel F. Mosteller published recommendations to identify specific "or else's" or issues proposed for collective action.

The recommendations and the “or else’s” listed below were developed out of the Issues Committee of the Atlanta Local Organizing Committee (LOC) for developing the support to the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March held on 10-10-15 on the national mall in Washington, D.C. The Issues Committee was chaired by Reverend Samuel Mosteller and 25 other community leaders.
