When VOX ATL visited the GCAPP Empowerment Summit, here’s what teens had to say regarding identity.
VOX ATL visited with a group of young people working International Rescue Committee this summer. In the time we spent together, three IRC participants wrote and shared about their experiences in America.
I march because, even though we will face consequences for the walkout on [Wed., March] 14th, we saw little to no response from the local and national leaders.
How can you completely let go of the only people who speak and look and party like you, especially when there are only a few in a place that is so unfamiliar?

Atlanta-area teens share their thoughts about what race means to them in this day and age at an event VOX held at the Center for Civil and Human Rights.

It is not our intent to exclude anyone, nor do we consider this issue a definitive look at race in Atlanta; instead, we hope our work is just one part of a larger ongoing dialogue that needs to occur within our communities.
Events like this remind everyone that teens do a have a voice — a loud and creative one at that.
