There comes a time when silence is betrayal. We support Black Lives Matter in its mission to eliminate state-sanctioned violence and anti-Black racism.
This week our Senior Program Lead, Nico Bremond, led the Arts Opportunities for All Cohort in an activity to use art as an outlet to stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter. The Arts Cohort works with artistic youth expression with a social justice perspective.
Previous Cohorts have composed music, written speeches, filmed journalistic interviews, designed instruments, and an array of other expressive art forms. The Arts Cohort aims to mobilize adolescent growth in communities while giving youth a choice in which way it grows.
