Our new normal has forced our youth to "function in dysfunction" with no road map, blueprint, or GPS to guide them through. Our programs gives young people an opportunity to exercise their right to freedom of speech and self expression. We promote facilitated discussions that give young people the space and support they need to develop a full identity, realize their self-worth, and find their voice in an increasingly complicated world. We all have inherent value as human beings, and no one person's value is more or less than anyone else's. Our young people are learning to "function in dysfunction' and it is our goal to mobilize our youth, their peers and families to work towards positive change.

Burden of Brutality
A fascinating conversation about the affects unjust and racially motivated mistreatment of minorities by law enforcement are having on our youth. Listen to what they are feeling as they navigate through life trying not to become the next victim. Parents also discussed how these often traumatic events have altered how they prepare their children for the world.

Hear Our Voices
Hear Our Voices helps our youth develop and amplify their voices through various non-partisan , non violent platforms. We offer youth "A Seat at the Table", a platform where young people have the opportunity to engage in thought provoking conversations with leaders in our community on relevant topics such as police brutality, racial disparities, history (civil rights), and other current events. Youth are also able to express themselves through visual arts, writing, music and other creative means. Hear Our Voices ensures young people are able to speak freely for themselves and convey their thoughts and emotions about the issues that they are facing.
