Check out this amazing video chronicling Journey for Justice, a protest event held in Washington, D.C. in September! Advocates from across the country traveled to the nation's capital to rally and march against school closures, which disproportionately affect low-income communities and communities of color.
Before being given the axe, these schools are often set up to fail: they're chronically underfunded and unable to provide the types of resources and opportunities students need to succeed. As the advocates in the video say, "Justice is equitable funding for all our schools."
A shout out to our friends and OTL allies at Boston Youth Organizing Project, Philadelphia Student Union, Kenwood Oakland Community Organization and Youth United for Change, who are featured in the video alongside organizers Jitu Brown and Ocynthia Williams.
