High Scool Friends

 Want to make a difference in your school? 

Join our student coalition! Our Voices Project Student Coalition is committed to fostering student-centered, student-driven opportunities that affirm racial and cultural identities, empower students as agents of social change, and contribute to an individual’s engagement, learning, growth, and achievement through cultivation of critical thinking. We are committed to dismantling destructive stereotypes of Black, Brown, and Indigenous Peoples in our society through sharing individual and collective experiences.

 

We create a safe, welcoming space for high school students to discuss topics including truth-telling about Black American history; self-exploration around identity; reproductive rights; hate crimes; school violence; gun control laws; and racially motivated murders. We document these processes through film and photography projects.
