The Black Male Community Council of Philadelphia was founded by Stanley Crawford, organizer, president and the surviving parent of a homicide victim. This organization was established as a result of his experiences after his son, William Aboaje Samir Crawford was murdered on the streets of Philadelphia. Determined not to allow grief to paralyze him, Stanley presented a call-to-action for Philadelphia's Black men. His crowd sourcing efforts yielded a coalition of 50 African American males, whose community leadership and activism span decades and is multi-generational. These men bring various levels of expertise and diverse experiences. Faith-based organizations, social service organizations, law enforcement, community leaders and other community stakeholders make up the membership of B.M.C.C.P.
The MISSION of The Black Male Community Council of Philadelphia is to Unite as black men to provide a clean, safe and secure environment for the women, children, and elders of our communities through membership and leadership that will embrace our neighborhoods with their presence and resources to uplift and empower targeted areas of Philadelphia.
The B.M.C.C.P goal is to transform hot-spots in Philadelphia neighborhoods into peaceful, clean and safe environments for the women, children, and senior citizens to live. Through collaborative partnerships and strong community engagement we intend to reduce violence via representation and visibility in targeted areas of the city.
