The Heroes Among Us is about celebrating ordinary folks in the Sonoma County community doing extraordinary work to create transformative change. These heroes offer hope and inspiration, reminding us of the power we each hold to drive collective change. Dez Rae Kai is one of our amazing heroes, a high school senior who organized and led Black Lives Matter protests, vigils, and mural artwork in Sebastopol. She has collaborated with numerous other young people and is a huge inspiration to people of all ages, creating an inclusive movement for social and environmental justice.
