Carlos Lopez is a 9th grader who has truly been an inspiration in our BLA community. He has been open about his willingness to be involved with BLA and being a support system to his peers. Recently, he shared with one of our social workers, a beautiful video he created about gun violence and the importance of feeling safe. Not to mention, he is a rockstar at skateboarding. Carlos, on behalf of BLA, we appreciate you!
