Stand Up Arizona

Hosted by The Streets Don’t Love You Back movement, Stand Up Arizona is an educational conference meant to raise awareness of gang violence, drug use, and abuse among the youth population. Speakers come from hugely diverse backgrounds, including former criminal leaders, survivors of physical and sexual trauma, evangelical pastors, and the mother of a hip-hop icon.

  • Robert D. Boyd Jr.: the founder of The Streets Don’t Love You Back, he followed a path of violence and drug dealing after—at 9 years old—seeing his stepfather killed
  • Lucinda Boyd: a survivor of abuse and teenage alcoholism who overcame countless hurdles to become an author, television producer, and the president of The Streets Don’t Love You Back
  • Donna Buchanan: her book, Second Chance Runaway, tells the story of her life, running away at age 14 and heading down a path that resulted in a conviction of second-degree murder
  • Beverly Broadus Green: the mother of Calvin Broadus, whom audiences may know better as Snoop Dogg, is an evangelical preacher who speaks of domestic violence and single parenthood
  • “Freeway” Rick Ross: at one point, he was at the head of a multimillion-dollar cocaine operation, but when it all came down around him, he realized he had to change or die

Arizona Event Center

Wanting to see more art, music, and entertainment in their town, a few local businessmen decided to take matters into their own hands and build a venue flexible enough to host all three. Their creation—the 30,000 square foot Arizona Event Center—boasts three stages between the back theater and front pavilion, comfortably hosting up to 4,000 guests at any given time. They rent the versatile space out for concerts, sporting events, trade shows, comedy nights, and even weddings, enhancing each experience with a professional lighting and sound system.

While the place itself is already impressive, the owners supplement its intrinsic charms with local business partnerships. The Mesa Police Department oversees certain security duties, liquor and energy drink companies supply complementary goods as advertisements, and Clean Air Cab makes sure that plenty of vehicles are on hand to ferry away partiers who took advantage of the full bar or donated their rides to a monster truck rally.
