We’re proud to announce that our annual Justice Empowerment Scholarship is now open to receive submissions. Last year we awarded the scholarship to Adrian Hurndon, an undergraduate student at Northeast Community College. Adrian Hurndon, an upbeat percussionist, when asked what inspired him to submit a video for the 2019 Justice Empowerment Scholarship said, “It is the perfect opportunity to let people know that awareness is only part of the solution and it’s time to take action and stand up for ourselves.”
