Today we had an opportunity to speak to speak with Hector Santiago ( the creator of Stop & Shake) and get to know a little more him and his life. This this is an amazing story, please watch the video and SHARE it.

Hector Santiago is a 29 year old proud father of two daughters . Emarie G Santiago & Paislyn H Santiago. He’s a life long resident of Yonkers NY and considered a local activist , mentor, and urban program developer .

Hector Santiago is a student at Mount Saint Vincent where he received a full presidential scholarship and is also the founder and creator of the “StopAndShake” initiative .

The StopAndShake encourages members of the police department to avoid miscommunication with community by reaching out and introducing themselves through a common greeting. It began here in Yonkers and the movement has taken root and spread throughout the neighboring cities like mount vernon and is now being implemented throughout the New York metropolitan area, building on its initial goal to bridge the communication gap between community and local patrolling police . StopAndShake is a powerful idea by simply connecting the like minded and becoming a “Social Icebreaker” .

Hector looks forward to many more decades of community activism and focusing on engaging youth from different economic and social backgrounds to build stronger communities , one handshake at a time.

“It definitely takes a village to raise a kid, but it takes lots of loving relationships to build a village.. Let’s get connected ”
