What does advocacy sound like? during 2016-2017 over 100 parents, kids, and experts went to speak to the BVSD school board. Listen at the 20min mark to hear 10 parents speak with passion about issues in BVSD with illiteracy and dyslexia. One in five is a big deal.

Ameer Baraka affectionately known to his friends and fans as “The Sexy Dyslexic,” had an early life that was as gloomy and as ill-fated as a young life could have been. In and out of the “system” as a kid for transgressions ranging from youthful indiscretions to major crimes, he was seemingly on a one-way trip to oblivion.

He was introduced to a life of crime and drugs by his father, and he was called dumb and stupid by everyone around him, including his own mother.
