Each month we have breakfast and/or lunch in the park to break bread and have dialogue with Tribe members. (Crips, Bloods and Community residents). We play music, board games, tell stories and eat good food. This is a time for healthy, positive engagement and mental strengthening. We teach inner-peace and ways to implement kindness, respect, compassion and an understanding of why our lives matter. We also use this time to survey the needs of community members. Whether these needs include jobs, housing, food, clothes, mental health support or other essentials. We connect Tribe members and community with the resources that create a sustainable and better life.

WHAT IS SMUSHBALL?
Smushball functions like baseball but instead replaces a standard hardball with a ‘smush ball’, which is softer in texture, feel, and slower in speed. The tournament is open for sign-ups of 12 teams with a minimum of 9 playing members. Intergenerational players are encouraged to participate starting from 7-year-old children, parents, uncles, aunts to 80-year-old grandparents are welcome to play.
