COVID-19 tossed our community into the fire and only underscored issues we’ve been tackling for decades. We’ve lost so many young people due to gun violence, seen increased education inequality, lack of healthy food access, housing insecurity, and so much more. Within all this chaos though, we have seen our community step up in a beautiful way. Neighbors began hosting major food distributions, sourcing and soliciting mental health services, working with young people to host fun, safe events… supporting each other.
This is resilience.
