About Us

Our Mission:  Balloons Over Bullets is a program created for the youth in hopes to set the tone for the summer and encourage kids to take the streets back with positivity. It’s a beautiful conditioning system to get kids and families to see the value and power in community.

Our Vision:  Balloons Over Bullets strives to build a community founded on unity, economic prosperity, and the love and protection of our youth.

Our History:  In Spring 2018, DeMar Johnson launched a campaign called Balloons Over Bullets to proactively battle gun violence in Stockton, CA. This campaign was created to bring fun activities back to the youth in our city and was rooted in the idea that kids need a reminder that it is okay to be kids. Since its launch, B.O.B. has expanded its reach and aims to address many needs in our community through empowerment and opportunity.
