Justice is Born: INNOVATIVE PROGRAMMING!
PEACE. Proper Education Always Corrects Errors!
I go by the name of Justice Born, b.u.t. also known as “Just Be.” I’m from the North Shore region of Massachusetts and my
work is done mostly around Lynn, Peabody and Salem.
As an activist, Hip Hop promoter, event planner, barber and student of life – I pretty much have an idea what’s going on in the local community! Not everything, but I know the basics and some of the more important issues. I know there’s homeless people living behind banks and in abandoned homes, some even on the train tracks down the street from where I live. I know there’s hungry people that live in the streets and hungry people that aren’t homeless. I also know I can’t afford to feed everyone or house everyone yet I know what needs to be done to help. I know what I can do and that’s take positive action.
Recently, I decided to engage local artists in some Hip Hop activism, with the hope that they would become more proactive in their immediate community – by using their talents and abilities for the best use possible and for the greater good. By organizing and promoting an Open Mic & Food Drive once a month and calling it “Reap What You Flow“, I figure this is another step in a positive direction. It’s not just an event however. It’s a concept that I hope takes root in the minds of many.
Everyone can do something and everyone can give something. Whether its time, energy or expertise, you’re needed somewhere. There’s certainly a lot of work to do and while its always good to help people even when you’re not in the public view, if you have their attention, try to set a good example. That might just inspire and motivate on a large scale. Can you imagine the domino effect of positive action? Well what are you waiting for? This is just an one example of what
I’m doing to make justice born in my area.
