On June 21, 2011, the entire Emerica team will be joining the skaters in the streets of Los Angeles on Go Skateboarding Day in support of Boards For Bros, a group of skateboarders working together to collect and refurbish skateboards so they can be redistributed back into the community for youth who cannot afford or have no access to their own.
