G-MACC INC. BELIEVES THAT THE NEED FOR CHANGE IS UNDERSTANDING THE NEEDS OF INDIVIDUALS
Shanduke McPhatter ‘Trife Gangsta’, is a National Gang Specialist and Youth Advocate. Born and raised in Brooklyn. Between the ages of 15 and 30 he lived a life of crime, fast money, violence and prison sentences. While incarcerated on Rikers Island, Shanduke BKA “Trife Gangsta” joined the United Blood Nation. Now as the Executive Director of G.-M.A.C.C. Inc., Shanduke heads up a community organization that seeks to provide assistance and positivity for the community.
While in a state prison Shanduke saw a little boy (eventually incarcerated for 31yrs) running to his father (mentor during his 1st/2nd incarceration), another prisoner, for the first time. This moment became his reason to break the cycle of incarceration and violence as he did not want his kids or any child to visit their parent in prison.
This realization is why he focuses on helping the youth in the community, while also being the reason to fall into the cycle of violence again.
