Ezrach (Hebrew for a tree or sprout with indigenous roots to the land) was founded in 2016 in a local barbershop. As conversations normally progress in the barber chair, Shaahid and Daniel discussed the condition of communities in Los Angeles and the economically disadvantaged in the neighborhood. Daniel & Shaahid thought about bringing back the basics to the community and how coalition building would strengthen the financial infrastructure.
As time went by, 2019 approached and after the demise of the late-great Nipsey Hussle, it sparked a flame under Daniel and Shaahid. Immediately, Daniel and Shaahid and Jessica convened their first meeting and planned to take action. August 2019, Ezrach was established and they never looked back.
