Act. Respond. Initiate. Stand-up. Empower.
From Trayvon Martin to Stephon Clark, from inner-city schools with no heat or clean water to less than 42% graduation rate for today’s Black college students, our community has been exposed to trauma and spaces of chaos. At Impact18, we are issuing a communal call, from Esther 4:16, to Black students across the nation to A.R.I.S.E. and become stakeholders in the healing, relief, and deliverance of our community.
