Last week we found out there was a young lady without a bed or a desk to help her succeed with virtual school. Our community and supporters came together and we were able to assist! Her mom says she already "sees an improvement with her dedicating more time to school work.”

Justice was not dispensed. We will not rest until there is justice for all. It's timely that our youth are honored for using their voices to call for change. We will carry their voices to the mountaintops, until our justice system hears them. #SayHerName#justice#breonnataylor

We mourn the loss of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her commitment to furthering the rights of women and minorities throughout the US. We hope that her story will continue to be told to all young people and inspire a future Supreme Court Judge.
