SOCIAL JUSTICE, WELLNESS, CULTURE, HERITAGE, FITNESS, COMMUNITY, HEALING
Nonprofit organization WalkGood LA was started by activist and filmmaker Etienne Maurice. Joined by his sister Ivy ‘Coco’ Maurice and cousin Marley Ralph, the WalkGood LA organizers describe themselves as “a community dedicated to bringing people together from all walks of life, to fight and heal in solidarity through the arts, health, and wellness."
Together, these three have powered the movement and have reached thousands of people with messages of social justice and solidarity. The movement started back in June 2020, as a response to the lives lost by police brutality against people of color. Etienne, Ivy, and Marley took to the streets of their hometown, Los Angeles, to protest.
Soon after, they were moved to start a run project titled #RunGood with members of the community. They ran together for 10 weeks straight before expanding their efforts. They decided it was not only important to fight against the injustices together but to heal together as well. Since then, they've added #BreatheGood, #HikeGood, #PaintGood, and #SweatGood to their event list.
