“Where do we go from here?” The answer lies within those who’ll have the greatest impact on the America of tomorrow: the youth of today.
In partnership with BRIDGES USA, a Memphis-based youth leadership organization, we’re working to create opportunities for young people to raise their voices and create positive social change on the issues they care about most deeply.
As a key component of the MLK50 digital platform, Youth Voices highlights and uplifts the perspectives of young people around the world on the relevance of the Civil Rights Movement today.
We invite students ages 14-21 to share their creative expressions and ideas for action to advance Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s platforms of poverty, jobs, housing, education, justice, and peace. Forms of expression may be written, visual and/or artistic and may address some of the following questions:
Students ages 14-21, we need to hear from you. Whether you’re actively engaged in social justice work or you want to share your powerful vision for the future and get more involved, tell us about it. Submit your thoughts on the significance of Dr. King for your generation and your recommendations on where your community can go from here.
