MAD DADS Minneapolis Chapter
MAD DADS, Inc. was founded in May 1989
by a group of concerned
Omaha Nebraska African-American men and parents who were fed up with gang
violence and the unmolested flow of illegal drugs in their community.
These men understood that they could not hold any one responsible for this
but themselves, because they had allowed this to happen.
They presented themselves as positive
role models and concerned loving
parents who were a visible presence in communities against the negative
forces destroying children, families and neighborhoods.
MAD DADS started out of pain, the pain
of children dying in the streets of
their own communities. They were, and still are, tired of looking into the
hollow eyes of youth who lack hope, and who have ceased to dream.
These men realized that they could hold
no one responsible for this but
themselves; they had allowed this to happen.
So they united as a handful of
community fathers who have come to know that
they must be the force behind change. A change that is already taking
place across America as men begin the monumental task of rescuing their
children, families and cities from drugs, gangs and violence. At long
last, men are coming to the forefront of the battle!
As such, MAD DADS activities are
designed to promote and demonstrate positive
images of fathers engaging and protecting community, youth and families.
