Teens: Meet Rapper, Writer, and Actor Piper Ferreira
Join us for this exciting virtual event. Meet rapper, actor, and writer, Oakland native Piper Ferreira, who will perform and share his story of growing up during the crack epidemic to touring the world with his band Flipsyde. Hear why he eventually decided to go into law enforcement in hopes of creating reform from within and what that, along with his studies in Black History, have taught him about policing, racism, and social justice.

How do you play?

Participants complete activities and write book reviews to earn points.

Every three points completed earns a virtual raffle ticket that can be used to enter a raffle for a grand prize and also enters you into branch-specific raffles.

You can earn an extra virtual raffle ticket each week for completing an activity that fits the weekly theme and get extra virtual raffle tickets when you reach 9 points and 18 points and for attending our summer events.

When you've completed 18 activities, you have successfully "completed" the program. Congratulations! You can keep doing activities and earning more chances to win prizes.
