Hello y’all my name Larry “Coop” D. Veal years ago I left the lucrative comedy circuit when my younger brother was sentenced to prison under The 1994 Crime Bills Mandatory Minimum for life. It was for a drug charge. During that time I had an epiphany “knowing I only have ONE LIFE, do I use it for my selfish gain, or to try and save the next generation?
Since then I’ve written books, a curriculum, and even spearheaded the largest in-school mentoring initiative in the State of Georgia, Gwinnett County Public Schools in January 2009.
By the way, my brother was released in Feb. 2019, after serving 25 years.
He was released under President Trumps “First Step Act”.
However, we believe the REAL First step act is the act to keep youth from going to prison in the first place.
Please support this effort to campaign to do three things:
1) Push for every school system to have a mentoring initiative for high-risk students. This will improve safety for all other students and staff,
2) Encourage local and state legislators to introduce Bills that will make it mandatory for schools to offer some type o mentoring or Behavior Modification/ Social Emotional Learning Service instead of suspension for less serious offenses.
3) Enable me and my team to administer free Ten-week, one hour group sessions for over 100 At-risk Metro-Atlanta students and families 2021/22.
