Meet our Founders:
Founders of Street Groomers –
Brother Stone & Brother Haroon Walik
Several Atlanta area young Black men and “street tribe” members, led by Brother Haroon Walik an (ex GD gang member) and his brother, Brother Stone (a former blood gang member) decided to put their differences aside, gave up their former lifestyles and came together to get their COMMUNITIES BACK THE RIGHT WAY!
They had grew tired of life on the streets and in the jails and decided to transform their lives and to reach out to others in similar situations to help them do the same.
They were also tired of seeing young Black men killing each other, and racist police harassing, incarcerating and killing their brothers and sisters.
So they decided to organize themselves into street patrol units, unite the “street tribes”, and begin taking back the streets the right way and cleaning up their communities—and with those ingredients the Street Groomers were born!
We will always give honor to our founder,
Brother Haroun Shahid Wakil.
Atlanta activist and ‘a gentle soul,’ dead at 40 who founded the Street Groomers group as a way to self-police and clean up the neighborhood after his own run-ins with law enforcement when he was younger.
A Man that worked to clean up the West End neighborhood.“He was a gentle soul, a fearless activist and a servant leader to his community,” A Man of Power sent by the Most High!
HIS LEGACY LIVES ON THROUGH US!!
Street Groomers legacy is carried on through spirit, and led by grace in his memory and honor.
Brother Haroun Shahid Waki is no longer with us but our vowel is to always keep his Legacy Alive!!
Since the passing of our beloved founder, we have been blessed to carry out the goals and purpose of our organization by our Co-founder and first lady.
