Thank You For a Memorable Evening!

On Tuesday night, over 200 of Global Action Project's closest friends, family, community partners, and supporters came together to celebrate the power of young people making high-impact social justice media. Our amazing Co-MC’s for the night, Giselle Bleuz and Rene Gonzalez, took us on a journey filled with song, dance, and interactive multimedia as we premiered four new youth-produced films including collaborations with Streetwise & Safe and DRUM. This years films interrogated urgent issues such as police violence, surveillance of Muslim communities, the criminalization of LGBTQ youth and the importance of creating alternatives to punitive school suspension policies… and did we mention SupaFriends’ brilliant remake of Mean Girls?
