On Saturday, history was made in the Bay Area as members of our communities marched side by side in a peaceful protest across the Golden Gate Bridge!
What started off as a idea of getting a small group to peacefully protest turned into THOUSANDS closing down the bridge, and all because of two teenage girls who were ready to see a change. Tiana Day (17) and Mimi Zolia (19) didn’t know each other before the protest and actually connected on social media days before this historic event. Goes to show you the power of social media and the power of our youth!
This is the first Black Lives Protest to be held on the Golden Gate Bridge.
This was such a moment of unity in different ways, a couple even got engaged at the protest on Saturday!
St. John had a chance to catch up with Tiana and Mimi today to talk about what inspired them to organize this event and how they can empower the youth to stand up for what they believe!
Tiana and her father have also started a Nonprofit Organization “Youth Advocates For Change” to help the youth and offer scholarship opportunities.
In just a couple of days they have managed to collect almost $18,000!! If you would like to donate to their GOFUNDME page. Click <HERE>
