University of Wisconsin Assistant Basketball coach Howard Moore has launched The Moore Foundation in Chicago and created an initiative he calls “Legends Taking Back the Streets.”
Moore has put together an impressive array of former NBA players and other high schools legends to help him get the message across about the importance of fighting gun violence. Moore launched the foundation in the memory of his uncle, who was gunned down in a drive-by shooting, another victim of the senseless gun violence that is permeating the City of Chicago.
Given his Chicago ties and his current position with the University of Wisconsin, Moore is looking to expand his base of support to the Madison community. On May 9, 2019, Moore held an introductory meeting at Blackhawk Country Club in Madison where approximately 50 supporters gathered to help him move his project forward.
One thing that really impressed me was the energy that Coach Moore brought to the table. I should not have been surprised since his recruiting prowess and energy are his hallmarks as an assistant coach.
Howard has a very clear outline of what he plans to get done with the organization and is slowly building up both the base of support as well as the infrastructure that will be needed to support the scale of operations that he plans to execute.
It is a pleasure to support someone with his passion and vision and strongly believe that he will be successful in launching effective programs in Madison.
