Mark Talley is the son of Geraldine C. Talley, who was killed in the Tops shooting by a white supremacist on May 14th, 2022. Prior to this date, Mark just went along through the trials and tribulations of life believing there was nothing he could do, he was just powerless.
Afraid of what he would say or do, Mark just started volunteering everywhere he could on Jefferson Ave for the next several months to channel his emotion. After doing all this volunteering, Mark started feeling an urge to become more of a community leader / social advocate. This led to him forming his own nonprofit “Agents for Advocacy” and organizing his first charitable event on July 7th, 2022 “The Community BBQ and Prayer”. Mark in collaboration with others was able to serve over 700 hotdogs and hamburgers along with providing bags of fresh produce, gifts, appliances, and meats. On April 28th Agents for Advocacy organized a back-to-school drive in which over 500+ children were provided backpacks, calculators, pens/pencils, folders, and notebooks. Currently, Agents for Advocacy is raising funds to provide a Thanksgiving for the homeless.
