Established by volunteer teacher Rebekah Star, Change the Definition LLC, is a philanthropic apparel company, aiming to bring about change in African-American communities one shirt at a time.
While working in the Portland Public School System, Rebekah noticed that most of the students falling behind were African-American or Latino. As a black woman she became driven to uplift her community and her people.
Following a life-changing trip to Ethiopia, Africa, Change the Definition is ready to move forward with a t-shirt design consisting of the poem that changes the definition of black and a “power to the people” fist. This symbol is fitting since Change the Definition strives to create change on a global level. By using our power as consumers we can help at-risk youth embark on a new path to wealth, success, happiness, and most importantly, true freedom.
Change the Definition has made a commitment to create a bright future for America’s at-risk youth and children in Africa by investing in education-based projects and programs. Their recent projects include providing over 5,000 take home books for at-risk youth falling behind in reading and building a library in Ethiopia for kids who lack access to books.
