The Johnson brothers aren't new to tragedy. They lost their eldest brother and two nephews' to gun violence and another nephew to cancer, but that doesn't stop them from making an impact on the lives of at risk youth. @tkbkourstreets
We met these guys last year canvassing the streets of East Oakland, looking for a place to set up their impromptu dance experiment...we danced, we laughed, most importantly, we connected as community.
When a child is missing or murdered in the streets of Oakland, CA., Daryle Allums is on the scene! Daryle carries the pictures of every child homicide victim screaming "STOP KILLING OUR KIDS!" We are proud to call him our community partner, because it really does takes a village! @AdamikaVillage
Wanda Johnson (mother of Oscar Grant), Brenda Grisham (mother of Christopher Jones), Founder-Jasmine Hardison, Jeralynn Brown-Bluford (mother of Allen Bluford, and Oneika Wilson (mother of Regginae Jeffries). All of these mothers have experienced losing a child to gun violence, either by the hands of the police or civilian. That has not stopped them from being a voice and taking a stance in the community.
Our community outreach doesn't stop in Oakland. We've built alliances with our neighbors in Richmond, CA.
