In this workshop, Youth United, along with VOX teens and adult supporters, discussed interviewing techniques for their social justice projects and volunteerism.
This semester, VOX took on a topic that is rampant in mainstream media, especially since the last presidential election: immigration. A series of self-expression workshops this semester resulted in a lot of voices from teens who are refugees and immigrants, including this video.
“When you govern this nation, You govern the PEOPLE. Keep belittling us and we’re going to rise up higher than your ego.”
Black Lives Matter. Immigration. Sustainability. LGBTQ rights. Mental health in the prison system. Education. Intersectionality. VOX visited Emory’s Youth Theological Initiative to discuss these issues and other social justice issues.
