AES: Voices of Change
As last week came to a close, ten young individuals came together to share their reality and their truth during AES’ Voices of Change. Throughout the night, the participants shared their skills with the audience in a chosen category: singing, rapping, dancing, poetry, and spoken word. There were laughs, cheers, support, and even tears as the participants shared their stories of growing up with struggle and how their creative outlets have helped them to shine. Even the DJ for the night, DJ TLDSTR, had a story to share. Voices of Change was about creating a safe space for young people in Sacramento to share their reality and their truth no matter the barriers that stand in the way. It did just that.
On November 7, AES will be inviting the participants to The Davitto Leadership Center to celebrate all their hard work that they dedicated to Voices of Change. We’d like to thank our Title sponsors, Gilbert, and Foord, Van Bruggen, and Pajak for supporting this showcase. And, a special thanks to Future Development Youth Center for supporting young people like DJ TLDSTR in their musical endeavors.
