    _______________________________
    Mac Allred has always wanted to help people. It started when he was small and placed in a city-wide poetry contest. From there he saw that if you cared, then people might just listen to you. Growing up in North Carolina, Mac saw the differences between class and race. When his life hit a detour, Mac found out what the Juvenile Justice System was like. It was then that Mac decided he could never be back in a situation where this was the result of his actions. After spending an ill-prepared year in college, Mac decided to join the US Navy. It was a path that led to great high, and massive lows. Mac traveled the world and was able to see, again, the differences between race and class. Currently settling in Utah, Mac has found his inner activist. Some of that came though his desire to help, and other parts came from the way the world was moving.
