EYEJ: Empowering Youth, Exploring Justice, is a 501c3 non-profit based in Cleveland. Its mission is to empower and amplify the voices of teens and pre-teens by bridging them with diverse individuals to engage in interactive discussions centered around social justice. #WeAreEYEJ, our mantra this season, signifies EYEJ’s goal of going above and beyond. Being in our sixth year of service and being aware of our strong sense of community, we are confident that we can spread awareness farther than ever before.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 for EYEJ. The money we raise will go towards all of EYEJ’s programs so that we can expand our reach in the Cleveland community and touch more lives. Our #GivingTuesday campaign this year will be centered around dealing with toxic stress and practicing mindfulness. Our theme is #StressLess and we will utilize #WeAreEYEJ to show that we are stronger together. EYEJ wants to demonstrate that as a community, we can overcome toxic stress together and support one another in times of need. We hope to spread awareness on utilizing the tools and learnings we go over in our discussion series’ for not only our youth, but adults as well. Everyone faces stress and learning how to cope and conquer this worry is the first step to a peaceful and mindful life. Through our programs, we attack problems such as toxic stress, negative police relationships, and violence in our community.
