Get Right will work to ameliorate the iniquities that exist in today's legal system. Observing that too often, low-income citizens who are accused of crimes receive sub-par legal representation without any further help, we believe that addressing the topical problem without treating the underlying cause is ineffective. We will bring together legal representation and comprehensive counseling programs to help non-violent first time offenders get a fair trial in addition to the help that they need to be healthy and productive members of society.

Our venture is trying to break cultural boundaries with our talents in music. We want to bring our diverse population together. We've noticed that some people aren't very accepting and we want to change that. We want to expose other cultures and have people from different backgrounds join together and make music expressing their passion for their culture. This could possibly change people's outlook and make them more accepting. Plus, this will help artists persue their music career without breaking their bank.

The focus is to establish a long lasting recycling program, to encourage recycling, and to spread recycling awareness to every student at the school.
