On September 22, 2010 an online campaign, that included approximately 100 bloggers from all walks of life, was officially launched by Christelyn Karazin to address the issue that spurred waves of heated discussion. This conversation reached local and main stream media outlets including the Los Angeles Sentinel, Power 98, NPR, Essence, The Associated Press, The Washington Post, and MSNBC in 90 days. The Twitter hashtag #NWNW was tweeted over 100,000 times because of it. What was the conversation about? It was about the out-of-wedlock birth rate that is at an approximate 73% high in the African American community.
Why is this issue so important, especially to Christelyn and the thousands that have joined the movement? In Christelyn’s case, her first child was born out-of-wedlock so she understands the struggles that single parents face who have children unplanned and when the other parent isn’t active in the child’s life.
