Peaceful Roots Art Protest (Juneteenth)
The Peaceful Roots Art Protest (PRAP) was a Juneteenth event to celebrate the freedom of African Americans. We wanted Artists, and Business to not only network but celebrate and express themselves. A few weeks prior was the murder of George Floyd and as a result we wanted to express that even though the African American community are no longer slaves we still feel oppression and racism.
Black Wall Street Protest 1 & 2
The Black Wall Street Protests were created to give the local Black and Brown Businesses an opportunity to brand, network, and conduct business transactions to create a steady economic system within the inner city communities. Over 100 black business participated and were able to raise enough money to help their business flourish through the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Men's Mental Wellness Day
The "Men's Mental Wellness Day" is brought to you by Peaceful Roots hosted by the Hub (of 1341 Main St. Springfield, MA). The goal of the Men’s Mental Wellness Event is to unite/heal the African American, and the Latino(X) community. Resources have always been limited for them (financially, emotionally ,etc.) and due to the Covid-19 Pandemic it is getting increasingly harder to receive. Throughout this event we taught the importance of self care, and mental wellness.
