We are so proud of our Social Justice Fellows! Learn more about their incredible work through the videos below.
The Social Justice Fellows strive to educate, serve, and advocate in the spirit of inciting a more inclusive and equitable Metro Detroit. A bright and talented team of high school students, the Fellows collaborate on projects throughout the year centered on social justice and youth voice. In 2019, they planned and facilitated a regional conference, where they delivered peer-to-peer education on issues facing their communities. In 2020, they organized an online political education week on diversifying high school curricula. Most recently, during the summer of 2020, the Fellows participated in a community-based research internship. Taking full control over the creative process, they each conceptualized and produced a video module to address an issue of their choosing related to inequalities, prejudice, and discrimination. In their modules, they shared their lived experiences, their background research, and their calls to action. To learn more, follow @mdequityfellows on Twitter and Instagram!
