“Rachel DeGuzman was and remains the most enlightened visionary cultural hero, marketing and publicity implementer that STREB EXTREME ACTION has ever worked with. She believes in spreading the magic elixir of all the arts into the community and out into the streets; to build the true and future legacy of the irreplaceable value of culture all across the United States.”

““Inequity is not a theoretical or abstract concept to be debated by a dominant group, about an oppressed one. Marginalized people’s understanding of the existence of inequities and how they manifest are rooted in their lived experiences. They are the experts of their realities.”
