Nonprofit serves as “HERO” to BLM protesters across the Bay Area
Following the death of George Floyd, 22-year-old Kiana Simmons attended the first protest staged in San Jose. "We've fed and given water to thousands of people at this point," HERO Tent Board Secretary Jesilyn Faust shares, "we have over 70 volunteers out here helping us”. While Simmon’s supply and volunteer resources grow so do her future plans for HERO Tent. “I'd like to see it transform to different movements," Simmons explains, “what we offer can translate to any movement and we want to help the people of that movement get what they need while still being able to protest."
