You Matter

Just two words can save a life.

The You Matter Festival was a dream. 15-year-old Will Gurley saw Logic perform "1-800-273-8255" at the 2018 Grammy's and knew he had to do something. Six months later, on August 11, 2018, the first annual You Matter Festival was held at Blue Valley High School. The festival recieved press from the Kansas City Star and Fox 4 KC. The 2019 You Matter Festival is currently in its planning stages, and is expected to be held again in August.
