History Due to the death and ruling of Trayvon Martin, and through discussion and civil discourse, several Plymouth Church, UCC members including Mai Moore and June Antoine quickly gathered Plymouth Church members together as they knew that youth deserved and needed support to be empowered in August, 2013. Founder: Mai Moore, with her background and success in the tech industry understanding the balance between taking personal risk, speed, business, creating impact and results and community was necessary to help to amplify youth voices. http://eyej.org/our-story/
