centering activists and shifting power

Jazmine: A voice for self-determination

Workshops that Reimagine Justice

I Am Why respects young people as the experts and architects of change when it comes to creating a just society and equitable systems. Our approach begins with writing and art-making workshops that invite young activists to share their stories, experiences and ideas for change. Their vision of justice and self-determination—where young people reclaim their narratives—is the foundation of all I Am Why‘s communications, research and action.
