Atlanta Community Activist to Host Free Workshop Teaching the Power of Giving by “Checkmating” Violence & Crime

Atlanta, GA — On Thursday, December 15, noted youth mentor and anti-violence activist Orrin “Checkmate” Hudson will use a life-size chessboard to bring life lessons to students in metro Atlanta at the Stone Ridge Event Center. By learning to outthink the competition, Hudson says these young people will learn to respect others, think before they make dangerous moves, and give more than they take. The session will outline specific strategies that help students put “Brains Before Bullets.”

Hudson, founder of Be Someone (www.BeSomeone.org), is a former Air Force veteran and law enforcement officer and he has been awarded the prestigious FBI Director’s Community Leader Award. Since the year 2000, his program has brought 50,000 students the life-affirming message of “Peace, Positivity, and Purpose.”

He says he won’t stop until he has reached at least one million students with his life-changing messages. Hudson was dubbed the “pied piper of positivity” by CNN for coaching his students to a statewide chess championship and three citywide chess championships. At his upcoming workshop, he will teach a new currency to young people called KASH (Knowledge, Attitude, Skills, Habits), and show them how it can change their lives for the better.
