Choose a project Video

Videos are a great way to let others know more about how you feel about the injustice you care about. It doesn't have to look like a professional video. If you don't have one, we can help you make one later.

Post Traumatic Stress in children from low income communities

I am enrolled in an urban education system where learn about the systemic reasons why students in low income communities do not succeed in school. I realized it was not the students' lack of trying but rather the system failing these students.

Tell us more about the injustice you feel strongly about

The cycle between mental illness, violence, and academic achievement is one that is deep rooted in our nation's history. When students have a chaotic homelife because of violence(physical, economic, racial) they are less likely to excel in academics

What kind of help do you need from the community to solve it?

School leaders, community organizers, politicians, students, researchers
