PAZOS LAW GROUP PARTNERS WITH JASON TAYLOR FOUNDATION
TO EMPOWER YOUTH AND INSPIRE COMMUNITY
Weston, FL – Pazos Law Group, a Weston based law firm focusing on Family Law and Divorce, Homeowners’ Insurance Claims, Trusts and Estates and Personal Injury, has partnered with the Jason Taylor Foundation to empower youth throughout the South Florida community.
Utilizing multiple digital platforms, Pazos Law Group will invest in young voices within the Jason Taylor Foundation’s Omari Hardwick bluapple Poetry Network to produce and share socially conscious messages.
“We believe strongly in family and community,” said Nadia L. Pazos, Managing Partner of Pazos Law Group. “These young poets have a unique and powerful way of telling personal stories that should resonate with so many throughout the communities we work and live in. We could not be more excited and proud to support these young artists and amplify their stories.”
Beginning this summer, Pazos Law Group will launch original videos featuring youth poets on its YouTube, Twitter and Instagram channels. The videos will showcase spoken word poetry performances and candid conversations with the students. The first video in the series will feature poet Ni’ja Maxwell, President of the Miami Norland Senior High School’s Viking Freedom Writers poetry club, in conjunction with LGBT Pride Month. Maxwell was recently crowned as both the Individual Champion and a member of the Team Finals winning group during the Foundation’s Louder Than A Bomb Florida poetry festival.
“It is amazing to see how the South Florida community continues to embrace the young artists we work with through our bluapple Poetry programs,” said Seth Levit, Executive Director of the Jason Taylor Foundation. “The entire Pazos team instantly connected with the poets, and their commitment to corporate and social responsibility is refreshing. These kids deserve have stories that are valid and necessary, and they deserve to be heard. Pazos Law Group is helping to make sure that happens.”
