AFSC PA's Racial Justice through Human Rights youth group created this video for the If I Had a Trillion Dollars film festival about how raising the minimum wage would support low wage workers. AFSC PA partnered with Pittsburgh's Fight for $15 for this video.
Residents of one community in Guatemala City have transformed a dangerous, abandoned lot into a multi-purpose space that’s bringing people together and helping to make the neighborhood safer.
With AFSC’s support, the 14 de Octubre (October 14) sports field project turned a ravine full of garbage into a soccer field that’s also used for community meetings and events. The project was initiated by residents concerned that the ravine was a breeding ground for drug use and criminal activity.
The project is one example of AFSC’s work in Guatemala, where we partner with schools, universities, community-based organizations, and public institutions to build local peace networks that help reduce urban violence.
Take a look at this dynamic Prezi presentation to find out more about the 14 de Octubre project.
What do students of color have to say about how the criminal justice system sees them?
Students at Northwest Academy of Law High School in St. Louis made a video to describe their feelings regarding Mike Brown, the Darren Wilson grand jury verdict, and Ferguson protests happening in their community.
Joshua Saleem, AFSC’s peace education director in St. Louis, says that the grand jury decisions in the killings of Mike Brown and Eric Garner sent a negative message to youth that blackness is suspect, dangerous, and threatening.
“Many in the black community have already received these messages either through direct experience or knowledge of the history of the oppressive relationship between law enforcement and people of color in this country,” he says. The grand juries’ failure to indict reaffirmed the message that defenders of “justice” don’t place value on young black and brown lives.
“If we don’t name what has happened, youth of color will internalize the message that their life doesn’t have as much value,” Joshua says.
The video above developed out of student conversations about the impact of the grand jury decisions. Some of their responses to how the system sees them include: “A thug,” “wild,” “dumb,” “a demon” (per Darren Wilson’s testimony), “violent,” and “suspects.”
Who are they really and how do they want to be seen? Their responses include: “A human being,” “a citizen,” “smart,” “beautiful,” “wise,” and “good.”
