As a young person raised in the heart of Baltimore, Ralikh Hayes started his journey of combating social injustice in 2007 when he became an organizer/math tutor with the Baltimore Algebra Project. In 2015, Hayes, along with Michaela Brown and Tre Murphy, co-founded Black Leaders Organizing for Change (BLOC). This trio of visionaries believes that the path to black liberation and a just, fair, equitable democracy can exist only if we begin the hard work of redefining the systems that give way to oppression and racism.
