Artist Angeli Rasbury Ensures Our Youth Voices Matter

Bed-Stuy artist, author and educator Angeli Rasbury has been working with The Family Center children and teens for the last two years.  Earlier this year, she conducted workshops through Our Voices Matter, a project supported by a grant from the Brooklyn Arts Council.

Angeli says, “I am honored and immensely inspired working with children and youth.”  The Family Center is grateful for Angeli’s enthusiasm and expertise!
