Three LPTM Junior Mentors, Ricquan Greenfield, DeAnthony Greenfield, and Issa Ouarid, were on the front page of the Washington Post local section today speaking about the importance of creating and celebrating art, even in challenging times.

The three of them, each of whom have been coming to LPTM since elementary school, take pride and ownership in the environment of Love, Security, and Expression that they help create for their younger peers every day. Too often, they have had to help staff bring children inside from the playground after gunshots ring out nearby. But despite that adversity, they work every day to make sure every child at LPTM knows that they belong, and that they are innately powerful.
