A LANDMARK CASE. A MAJOR MILESTONE
WE ARE WORKING TO
EMPOWER STUDENTS OF COLOR
Education is extremely vital to breaking the cycle of poverty and the prison pipeline that plagues our community. Someone has to be first. Someone has to be the change. That's why we focus on first generation college students, specifically females in the inner city. We want to help them navigate the path to a four year degree. We want to change the question asked high school juniors and seniors from "are you going to college?" to "which college are you going to?" We want to redefine #squadgoals.
Our donations are strictly for non-profit organizations and scholarships that share our vision and understand the difficulty involved with being first. A portion of the profits from EVERY purchase help a first generation college student obtain a bachelor's degree.
