Let us work together to action change for the better.

Under-Represented Voices of Racism
Youth Reflections

Looking back now, I realized I was ashamed of my background due to the idea of  wanting to fit in  with the kids whose parents were born here and didn’t come from an immigrant family.

Voices Of Hope
Collection of Poetry

Historically, inflection points, occur when the spectre of racial hate scapegoats specific populations. However, incidents of hate and racism are also the focal points of humanity and change.

 

Voices of Hope, a poetry / spoken word project invites youth to share their visions of racial harmony as part of combatting racial division and exclusion. This Collection of Poetry, by youths age 11 – 18, is representative of young people’s understanding of the impact of racism and their hopes for what must change.
