Fulfill The Dream, Los Angeles, CA

Fulfill The Dream L.A started when Roberto was invited to speak at a conference hosted by SBCC. The momentum of the conference allowed for Roberto to connect with Eli Fournier and Gabby in through the Wilmington Empowerment Project in Wilmington, CA. This chapter is unique in that it started with two groups: one being youth and the other being parents. The groups met for ten weeks and discussed..the issues facing their communities, the assets available to them, and began working collaboratively in developing a plan of action to address these issues more creatively. The result was the Hip-hop Revival 2008.

This Hip-hop Revival included a fashion show, an MC battle, a Krump battle, a graffiti expo, and performances from local artists such as Red Cloud, MC Frost, and others. The youth were even able to get some former gang bangers together to discuss issues of peace, and they made a public statement declaring a strategic effort to make the dream of peace a reality.
