Here's a sample reel of the documentary:
All projects support the 34 + 1 campaign to improve effective decision making skills in teenagers and young adults. The campaign was launched on June 19, 2020, 34 years after he death of Bias, and aims to promote, Born Ready Project, presentations that teach effective decision making skills.
