Educate Compton

The "Compton Rising" project

The year 2019 marks 400 years of Black history, and we would like to draw the community's attention to the state of education in Compton (Los Angeles).

This is why we are starting the Compton Rising project and we are inviting our close friends and their organizations to express their support as we grow this project.

We want to reach out to you and invite you to show your support for the Compton Rising Project.

By signing your support, your only obligation would be to speak positively of Compton, and endorse the education and blockchain for kids, within your social networks.

If you are an organization, we would like to post your logo, as a supporter, on this page as well.

We hope you will join us on this exciting journey.
