LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
FEBRUARY 19, 2023
We have just completed our tenth #KnowYourRightsCamp in #LosAngeles, adding another successful event to our list of camps from Oakland, New York, Chicago, New Orleans, Amsterdam, Miami, Baltimore, Atlanta, and Las Vegas. These camps are the driving force behind our hard work as we strive to elevate the next generation of change leaders.
Our day was filled with joy, community, and peace as we learned about our rights, history, and well-being. We shared many moments of laughter, kinship, and gained knowledge about local histories, legal rights, mental and holistic health, education, finance, tech, and the power of art to change the world for the better. The young people in our LA camp were phenomenal, and we can't wait to stay in touch with them on their journeys to impact the world.
We would like to extend our thanks to our co-founders, Colin & Nessa, and the KYRC team, as well as our brilliant presenters at KYRC Los Angeles: Dr. Amir Whitaker (history), Chris Chavis, JD, MPA, Di Barbadillo, Nicole Martin, and Iman McAllister (legal), Dr. Darrick Hamilton (finance), Brandon BMIKE Odums, Mr. Emory Douglas (art), Sean Tory, M.S. (education), Nike Virtual Studios Web 3 team Gio Filliar, Masooma Ali, and Isaiah Andre (tech), Jasmine Simone (health), and Dr. Milo Dobson (mental health). Plus special guests Akim Aliu (NHL player, Author of Dreamer: A Graphic Memoir) and Keeanga Yamahtta Taylor (Scholar, Author, Activist), Kendrick Sampson (actor).
We invite you to check out how our day went, and please let us know where we should go next!
