Funded by The Chicago HIVE / Chicago Community trust
Scenarios Media Corps in Chicago is breaking apart standards of social media by using it as a tool to engage youth, as a participatory action research tool, and to ask the question, “How do you help your homies?”
- Taking place in public spaces (like Millennium Park), at youth-attended events (like 21Minus at the MCA), and in schools (at Lunchroom Takeovers).
The campaign seeks to engage young people in investigating and demonstrating allyship:
- How do we stand up for our friends?
- Our communities?
- Those we don’t know, but believe have human rights to live free of discrimination, actively, and healthy?
- How do allies lend a hand when they’re asked, instead of making assumptions or exercising privilege, or simply paying “lip service” to the concept of allyship?
