We are excited to host our 2nd annual Youth Social Justice Contest & Showcase on Tuesday, April 16! When you hear the hearts and witness the talents of our youth, you will be reinvigorated and reenergized to help us build a brighter future for children where their race does not predict their life outcomes.

Our Interrupting Racism for Children program hosted its first social justice youth contest last year, focusing on racial justice essays and other art projects.

Below, you can read an essay from one of last year’s winning entries. Please listen to the words of our youth. They have so much to teach us.
