Sharing our experiences; advocating for change
On our final day in West Virginia we hosted a teach-in. The kids worked in 9 different groups with teachers & WV activists to develop ways to share their experiences in WV and advocate for the people, mountains and water of West Virginia back in our New York City community. Groups focused on designing a poster (see above), writing a song, lobbying our house rep, writing a letter to obama, making art, writing an editorial, producing a film, putting together a film exhibit, and stopping the proposed purgen power plant in Linden, NJ.
As the projects are completed we will post them to this blog.
