The Youth Voices section features work by young people who are investigating, reporting, and reflecting upon what it means to be an active citizen in the world today. Other content includes spotlights on today’s youth — who they are, what they’re doing, and how they are impacting the world. It was originally launched as a collaboration between Parentology, Write the World’s Civics in Action program, the National Children’s Campaign, and Facing History and Ourselves. Youth Voices has since become a platform on Parentology for young people.
In this installment of the Civics in Action Write the World project, 16-year-old Alli Lowe shares a poem and a YouTube rap proclaim: Black Lives Matter.
