December Brother of the Month
2018 marked a critical year for the Austin 100 chapter. We’ve added new programs, engaged with the community, and set the stage to be a martyr in the community. We want to recognize 2 of our members for their passion and sacrifice to mentoring youth and being ready at a moments notice to support the 100 Black Men of Austin.
