Besides offering art materials and great service to our customers, Trekell believes in serving our community. The Trekell team has been working to create an event based on the conceptualization of a member of the team to empathize with, educate, and empower the Black youth of our community. We always feel it’s important to give back and help however we can, and now it’s more important than ever for us to show up in positive ways to support Black Lives Matter.
Trekell team member Madisson, who runs the router shop and is active in the local Black youth community, and her husband Joseph, shared their concept of organizing an event to educate, empathize with, and empower the Black youth. Trekell wholeheartedly supported the idea and we’ve been working together to bring this event to life.
Empathize, Educate, Empower
Madisson and Joseph’s event is called COMM[UNITY] in the HD and is taking place on Friday, July 10th, and Saturday, July 11th, 2020, at 14380 Amargosa Rd, Victorville, CA.
July 11: The weekend activities will begin with a bonfire for the youth to express their feelings with the support of their peers.
July 12: This day will consist of a panel discussion with local community members, a peaceful protest, and speakers to educate us on how we can make a positive change in the world on both small and large levels.
