LAS VEGAS, NV – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) released the following after her meeting with Heroes and Hearts, a nonprofit based in Nevada that supports literacy and leadership efforts in marginalized communities globally. Heroes and Hearts was founded by Justyn Boumah, age 6.

“It was a pleasure to meet with Justyn Boumah and his family to hear about the work Heroes and Hearts is doing to support their community in Nevada and other communities around the world,” said Senator Rosen. “At such a young age, Justyn is doing incredible work to support communities that often get overlooked. His goal for every country around the world to have a children’s library is an admirable one. The future looks bright with Justyn as a leader of our next generation. I will continue my work in Congress to support wonderful organizations like Heroes and Hearts, and I look forward to seeing what they can accomplish in the future.”

BACKGROUND: Justyn Boumah is a second grader from Las Vegas. He is the youngest founder of a nonprofit in Nevada. Heroes and Hearts has three signature projects: Super Justyn’s Giveaway, which aims to give clothes, toys, food, and books to communities all over the world that are lacking these items; the Around the World Read-A-Thon, which raises money every November during Young Readers Week to help children and teens in foster homes and experiencing homelessness; and the Blessing Project, which provides thank you notes and gift bags to everyday heroes like firefighters, sanitation, and construction workers.
