Claim Your Rights

The KBF Civic Engagement: Claim Your Rights as a Citizen speaks directly to the necessities that our youth and young adults face day today. The criminalization of poverty, race and trauma has held our poor disenfranchised communities in its grips far too long for us to not find a way out. We provide an interactive experience that allows for the participants to learn in an alternative learning environment promoting useful tools towards skill building, mentoring and positive peer interactions. Reach out for any questions, comments or concerns.

Screening & CJR Panel

Kalief's story opened the dialog of how the Criminal Justice system has weighed heavily on our community and more so on our youth. Kalief's sacrifice for what he believed in took a devastating turn for the worse. An allegation of a stolen backpack lead to an inevitable death sentence for Kalief because he wouldn't accept what 98% of the population that enters into Rikers Island Department of Corrections accepts out of desperation and survival. We've held panels to discuss with all communities, the impact of jails/prisons, how we've come to this point in time and Action steps to help relieve communities and find alternatives to incarceration.
