Boards for the Barrio
Ben Dixon’s project, which he created while participating in Landmark’s Self-Expression and Leadership Program, was an event at the Cesar Chavez Skatepark. There people could swap old skateboards for new ones, and kids who didn’t have a skateboard at all could get a new one. In all, thanks to the event and the support of local businesses like Cowtown Skateboards and DC Shoes, over 100 young people either got a skateboard or got their old one fixed up.
