I recently visited Ryse Center and had an interview with Dan Reilly. He is  the director of media arts and innovation of Ryse center and he gave me a tour of the place and here are some pictures that i want to share with you!

RYSE was born out of a youth organizing movement initiated in 2000 in response to a string of homicides amongst youth near Richmond High School that galvanized students to take action to address the violence and lack of safety at school and in the community. Students organized vigils and community forums with over 1,500 youth and community members, met and worked with local officials and stakeholders on a comprehensive assessment of youth-identified priorities and solutions, culminating in the RYSE Youth Center (RYSE), which opened its doors on October 18, 2008.
