On April 25, 2014, we maxed our credit cards and used all our savings to take 100 young leaders to Miami.
This was the beginning of Breakout.
From the get-go, we learned that a city is more than a location, but a character in the conversation itself. We learned that there are so many community-driven rule-breakers in our country who deserve a spotlight, and we learned that we had to keep going.
Today, we've completed 9 immersive trips to 7 cities, including Detroit, Baltimore and Atlanta. We have a crew of thousands of young people across the country who gather around the issues and people progressing America, and we've expanded our city and change-maker in-person storytelling to an online experience.
Last, but not least, we know we're just getting started.
