Hosted by event organizer Zinah Abraha, Uplift & Amplify was an open mic event that was created with the intent of hearing the voices of those affected by racism in the Brentwood (and surrounding communities). The event featured speakers of the community with varying cultural backgrounds and included a 20+ minute video covering the personal experiences of over a dozen students current/former students in the LUHSD. The common theme surrounding the event was to listen with an open heart and open mind and to advocate for change in the community. (Eric Morford/The Press)
