Pageant Platform

Her platform for young black men was inspired by her own childhood. Being raised by a single father in the 90’s was something very rare particularly because the justice system usually didn’t side with fathers seeking full sole custody of a child, especially in Newark, NJ. Despite those odds, Natasha’s father did what was necessary and made what seemed impossible, happen for himself. Though this journey is specifically Mr Gallop’s alone, he did not get to the finish line without help. It was not without the help of a government funded “Young Father’s Program” ran by a Mr Charles Dixon. This program helped Natasha’s father, even though at the age of 25 he was considered “too old” to participate. The cut off age of this program and many others is on average 22years old, but there are so many young men in need of help well beyond the age of 22. This program offered conflict resolution classes, father’s rights classes, basic child care classes and those are just a few very helpful things that the program offered. This program ran from 1987 to about 2013 or so. Over the course of its run, Natasha’s father and more than 8,000 other men were assisted in finding quality long term work, and invaluable help. Could you imagine if every HBCU in the country participated in a program like this for years to come? Ever expanding and changing to meet the needs of its community? We would have such an exponential leap in progress. It would be well worth the wait and work.
