"My company is called Love1. I started it to honor the lives of my teammate and stepdad, who were murdered a year apart..." says RuQuan Brown the founder of the company. Brown donates a percentage of these profits to One Gun Gone, a project that buys guns off the street and turns them into art.
Newsome tells the story; Brown is not only leading by example in his local community through his activism, but he’s also making strides academically. He has been accepted into 24 colleges, including seven Ivy League institutions, and has garnered 16 scholarships. He’s also a star athlete and is a part of his school’s track and football teams.
