SOCIAL JUSTICE RESOURCES

 
 
 

The Seattle Times Presents:


Following the stories of two youth, this film addresses the impact of policing and surveillance, specifically on young immigrant and black communities in New York City. Youth producers are hoping to use the film to raise awareness among high school students about how they can fight back against Islamophobia and racism in their schools, on the streets and in NYC policy.
http://www.ted.com Our lives, our cultures, are composed of many overlapping stories. Novelist Chimamanda Adichie tells the story of how she found her authentic cultural voice -- and warns that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding.

First lady Michelle Obama will give her final remarks as first lady today at an event recognizing the 2017 School Counselor of the Year. She has an inspirational message for youth!

"So wake up — wake up! Lift your voices" - Donovan Livingston
