Senator Adams states: “I am partnering with Publicolor, a not-for-profit whose mission during the past 15 years has been to reduce the school drop-out rate by involving at-risk students in their own education. Publicolor employs an innovative creative arts program in an endeavor to empower students to reach their full potential. Publicolor begins by teaching students to transform their own public schools and nearby community facilities by painting these structures with vibrant colors.
