BMore Awesome Inc
BMore Awesome is a socially conscious, youth-driven organization and record label led by Rashad Hawkins, National Youth Activist of Baltimore, and founded by Baltimore youth, artists, community leaders, and advocates. BMore Awesome is uniquely poised to bring solidarity and community collaboration to the city of Baltimore. BMore Awesome serves as a hub for youth “artivism” while exploring the roots and experiences of Baltimore youth by providing a platform for them to share their perspectives, stories, and passions. Utilizing music as a tool to encourage cross-cultural collaboration, BMore Awesome works to mobilize youth throughout the city to express their perspectives on issues that impact their communities (i.e., poverty, the criminal justice system, the school-to-prison pipeline, police-community relations, etc.) and advocates creating systemic change. To accomplish these goals the organization is now working to launch two programs to recruit, train, and engage youth ages 11 -26 and community members throughout the City of Baltimore.
