Hillary Clinton Makes History

As of July 26th 2016 Hillary Clinton is officially the first female presidential nominee in the history of the United States!
Hillary who has an army of staunch supporters (which include her husband, former President Bill Clinton, her former challenger Sen. Bernie Sanders from Vermont and other notables from the world of politics and entertainment industry) succeeded in a historic roll call vote at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
In Hillary Clinton’s own words after the nomination: “I can’t believe we just put the biggest crack in that glass ceiling yet.”
Bill Clinton said: “She’s insatiably curious, she’s a natural leader, she’s a good organizer, and she’s the best darn change-maker I ever met in my entire life.”

STOP THE VIOLENCE!

In 2015, nearly one thousand people were shot in the City of Los Angeles. Unfortunately, the vast majority of shooting victims were young men of color shot by other young men of color. According to Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck, “Far too many of our young men are victims of senseless shootings at the hand of suspects who look just like them. The time for change is here. The time to unify is now! Together we must stop the violence.”
Chief Beck teamed up with Compton rapper The Game to launch the first in a series of Public Service Announcements (PSA) to encourage the community to hear this message and more importantly, have the strength and courage to implement it.
