Be there creative expression for all youth who are in need of outlets for voice to speak out on political in justices and society at large. Be there oppurtunities for community ideals to be cultivated from the perspective of youth who know what it's like to be oppressed since we were brought up in a world we live in. Let's open doors of positivity by engaging ourselves more in tune to the needs of our minorities and seek the positive changes that will allow growth in time. May our morals depict our strength to carry on in a fast paced world and may our abilities to reach out to one another be respected and carried out with the intention of healing our brothers and sisters across the county and beyond. America needs our voice now more than ever. Have hope and disperse our cries for justice for all to hear.
