JOINING THE FIGHT — For the first since his organization’s inception, Where Men Hurt founder and chief executive officer Andrew J. Landry has announced that he’s hosting a social justice townhall.

A one-day, spiritual empowerment assembly that’s centered largely on equipping the total man to become all that God has predestined him to be, the Where Men Hurt Conference will take place the following at from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. CST at the same venue.

An assembly Landry senses is essential for such a time as now, the townhall will be comprised of what Where Men Hurt officials describe as a social justice — or injustice — panel during which they will engage in discussions with area law enforcement officials.


WE WANT ANSWERS — Since word spread of Where Men Hurt spearheading its first townhall, Landry and his staff have become the beneficiaries of a rash of favorable feedback, in large part because the African-American community has been victimized by what is seemingly ongoing social unrest in around the country in recent years.

“The purpose is to have Q and A (dialogue) with law enforcement (officials) about strategies and policies that affect the community,” said Landry, explaining the purpose for the townhall. “(This townhall is designed to) give an opportunity to get the vantage point of both sides to help repair the relationship between the community and the law enforcement.”
