Nick Besada, Mikey Jastillana, and Chase Christensen are three student leaders of Saint Patrick-Saint Vincent high school who strive to make a change not just in their school, but in their community as well. These three students have taken action on a Police Oversight proposal with the help of Common Ground and their mentor, Mr. Ian Emperador, has been working with them rigorously to complete this project and ideally make an impact on the community and city government. Their message reflects on the importance of communication between the people of their city and law enforcement. After eighteen years living in Vallejo, California, Chase has become very active in his community, providing service to veterans at soup kitchens, and directly participating in helping his own community to become a safer place. Chase is the older brother of one, but a true brother to countless around him.
Living in Vallejo for the past 17 years, Nicholas Besada has become someone who deeply cares about his community, through attending city council meetings and coaching youth basketball at St. Basils, Nick strives to make his community a better place alongside his fellow colleagues.
While being raised in Vallejo, Mikey has been active in his community in various ways. Providing food for the homeless at shelters, and sporadically attending city meetings about police oversight. Mikey has tried to make the world around him a better place. Though believes with the help of his partners, he can change the world. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
