Via Bossip– Even after almost 10 years, Michael Vick is still atoning for his dog-fighting transgressions back in 2007.
To this day, there are still many people who cannot forgive the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback for his mistreatment of animals.
Vick is on a mission to change that stigma.
According to ESPN, he met with legislators at the Pennsylvania state capitol to impress upon them the importance of passing a bill that protects dogs who are left in hot cars during the summer.
Vick is scheduled to meet with Pennsylvania lawmakers in support of PA House Bill 1516, or the pets in cars bill, which would give police officers authority to rescue dogs and cats from cars due to unsafe temperatures.
“I know that I’m an unlikely advocate,” Vick said through a representative. “I was part of the problem. Now, my perspective can help reach people that activists can’t reach. I can help others become agents of change.”
Schoolchildren from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, will accompany Vick to the state legislature to lobby the Democratic caucus, according to the spokesperson.
Representatives Jake Wheatley Jr. and Ed Gainey will host the visit.
It’s extremely inspiring to see Mr. Vick not only switch up his bad boy ways after prison, but work endlessly to clean up his image and now put his support behind causes benefiting animals. Life is all about redemption and it looks like he is definetly on the right road. Good job MV!

Tonesa ‘Toni’ Welch, aka The Black Mafia Family’s First Lady stopped by her hometown Detroit’s HOT 107.5 radio station and give an update on the current state of BMF as well as to shed some light as to what the most known black drug organization of the new millennium she calls “family” was really about.
In the interview she gives her perspective on the organization and how she is giving back to the community through her own charity, Sylent Heart Foundation.
She says the Flenory brothers never hesitated to give back to those in the need. Upon her release, she started the Sylent Heart Foundation as a means to help children and families of incarcerated parents, something that she and her children experienced while she served time behind bars for her own ‘BMF’ indictment:
“I don’t care who needed help, we helped them and that’s why me being incarcerated myself and coming home, I wanted to carry that on”
She also discusses the now global BMF clothing line which was trademarked by her youngest son and is being worn by big name celebrities such as R&B singer Tank and Jermaine Dupri, whom she considers a longtime family friend.
