Inner City Innovators: A Conversation about INSECURE
– Hosted at ZOOM
part of a series on Insecure
About the speaker
Founder and Executive Director of Inner City Innovators, Ricky Aiken has made it his life’s mission to inspire and empower inner city youth to embody the change so desperately needed in their communities.
Ricky is a boots-on-the-ground, “all-in”, agent of change who believes that real change happens when the people who need it, lead it.
As a child raised in the inner city of West Palm Beach, Ricky has seen firsthand the plights associated with growing up in communities of concentrated disadvantage. He has suffered homelessness, witnessed familial addiction, lost friends to gun violence, and was expected to be another statistic; in fact he admits to being well on his way to fulfilling that destiny until he vowed to change the trajectory of his life.
Well known in West Palm Beach for his community activism, Aiken has found a way to use his life experiences and social capital to bring hope to his neighborhood and promote the value of resilience.
A celebrated speaker and mentor, he has big plans for the inner city and is working hard to change the image and climate of inner city neighborhoods throughout Palm Beach County.
“Real change happens when those who need it, lead it.” – Ricky Aiken

Cyan Shores was started in 2017 by West Palm Beach resident Shea Stockman. Shea has been screen printing for over a decade - starting in a printing class at Palm Beach Atlantic University. When Shea’s dormitory needed shirts for an event, he landed his first job and the fire was lit! Since then, he has printed thousands of shirts over hundreds of jobs.
Our amazing coffee sponsor is Subculture Coffee. Subculture Coffee is a vision of two local guys, Rodney and Sean, who believed in two simple things: the coffee culture and this city. The day they opened, and every day since, has consisted of roasting and brewing coffee the best they know how, in a space that allows people from all walks of life to connect. They strongly believe in fostering a community of diversity and expression, one that brings soul to our city.
