Lauren co-founded the Anti-Bully Crusaders Organization with her father. Several years ago, they teamed up to create a self-help curriculum in an effort to provide young people with the necessary tools to help reduce violence through educational opportunities and creative strategies. Having a tremendous amount of success using this unique technique, they are now ready to present this project to the world.
“As we grow mentally, spiritually, and physically, it is our job to become better, smarter, wiser, and to act upon our own free will to make a better contribution to society. Every generation must prepare for the next generation. To live for today is shortsighted, to live for tomorrow is vision. God gave us all the wealth of our potential, abilities, energies, creativity, ideas, and dreams to help others. We bear the responsibility for activating, releasing, and maximizing this potential. To help the next generation, we must nurture these gifts. If I do not take what has been given to me and my potential to make a serious difference, then I will have failed not only myself but others who are depending on people like me.”
She attributes much of her motivation for this cause to her passion for helping others who may not have voice or the means to help themselves.  
"The pain that I have in my heart is that we're not doing all that we can do in the wealthiest country in the world to stop bullying and violence. We are the most affluent and greatly blessed people anywhere on this planet and we are not doing enough for those who do not have a voice."

Lauren recently earned a degree in Real Estate and holds a degree in Business Administration while working towards her Masters (MBA). As a member of the National Honors Society she served as a student Ambassador to Europe and sat on the board of the Future Business Leaders of the American Society. In 2016 Lauren successfully launched her online boutique catering to the needs of all women. 
"I am a person who is really on a path. I am really trying to look deeply into this social issue of bullying, and I am consciously and passionately trying to make difference in this world."

Thank you for supporting the ABC Movement.

Peace & Love to you all... Lauren​

Alexis Ramirez accredits her passion for the ABC Project to assist those who do not have the voice or the resources to fight against bullying.  She’s focused on promoting bullying awareness amongst communities around, well also encouraging acceptance and peace.
Alexis received her Bachelors of Finance degree from the University of Texas at Dallas.  She has since made it her goal to assist the youth and inspire them to believe that they can achieve anything they set their minds to.  To inform them that no one should dream only to the top of the glass ceiling that bullying may place over their heads, but that they can break that glass ceiling and attain desirable ambitions; and with hard work, prayer, and dedication dreams do become reality.  If she can aid the youth and educate the adults, she will have made the necessary steps to inform society and enhance preparation for instances to come.

As a biracial woman of both Mexican and Haitian descent, she often found herself at battle grounds with those of one of the same ethnicities. 
“Growing up in a predominately Hispanic community in California, I was one of very few children in the entire town that was of African descent.  The feeling of not being accepted from children of my own race because of the color of my skin or the inability to speak their language was upsetting.  I wasn’t considered Mexican, I was “the black girl.”  Yet, at the same time, in Texas where majority of the population in my high school was of African American descent, because of my features there I was considered “the Mexican girl”.  I often found myself constantly defending my ethnicity.  Constantly defending who I was as a person.  That I took it upon myself to say I will not be defined by the color of my skin or the language I speak.  I’m not “the black girl” or “the Mexican girl” – I am Alexis.  A girl who became a woman and found her voice.  Not only for myself but for others that find themselves in similar situations”. 

As the Executive Director of ABC, she does this patiently to bring this great program to communities and school systems around.  To begin the necessary steps to eradicate bullying and reducing violence one individual at a time.
