CEASE FIRE … Don’t Smoke The Brothers, & Sisters Inc., is a non-profit, grass roots, 501 (c) (3) organization created in response to the rapidly growing incidents of death and destruction, violence and crime, among and directed toward youth at-risk and the ever increasing number of young minorities involved with the criminal justice system.

CEASE FIRE … Don’t Smoke The Brothers, & Sisters Inc., started with an original group of fifty (50) gang members, representing five (5) area gangs, under the leadership of former gang leader and long time youth advocate, Al-Malik Farrakhan. The group held their first meeting to negotiate peace, on February 28, 1995. Under the guidance of Mayor Marion Barry, Jr. and Mr. Al-Malik Farrakhan, these young men declared what remains an unbroken truce. They have joined forces with groups sharing similar issues and concerns toward a national struggle.

CEASE FIRE …Don’t Smoke The Brothers, & Sisters Inc., realizes that when attempts are made to break bad habits - - crime and violence, drug use and sale, and “gang banging” they must be replaced with good habits - - educational excellence, community involvement, entrepreneurial skills and opportunities, organized sports, etc. Therefore we are taking the guns and other weapons of violence out of the hands of young people and replacing them with the entrepreneurial skills. We have created meaningful employment for them through the sale of bottled spring water and buttons, silk screening and selling their own T-shirts, as well as providing training in silk screening and entrepreneurial skills to other young people.

As these young brothers and sisters move positively through the community selling their products, they are also spreading love; creating a support system for youth at-risk and young people involved in gang activity, and offering them an alternative to the violence of the streets and PREVENTION TO DETENTION.

THE MISSION

CEASE FIRE … Don’t Smoke The Brothers, & Siters Inc., is cognizant of the fact that the increased number of violent crimes, including homicides, is directly related to the prevalence of youth gangs, especially within the inner-city of Wa
