I get out of all your boxes
I get out.
You can’t hold me in these chains.
-Ms. Lauryn Hill
This is a time of national resistance. The brutal murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and Ahmaud Arbery have brought communities into the streets shouting “Black Lives Matter!” And this time, things are changing. Police departments are being defunded so that important city services can have funding once again.
While folks are taking the streets, we are also staying socially distant in the middle of this global pandemic. Major city centers like Philadelphia have been hit hard by COVID-19 and life for the next year will be a “new normal.”
In this time of unrest and uncertainty, what hope are you finding in your daily and social lives? What are you doing to make a change for the better with yourself and your community?
To help your thinking on this project, YES mentors and instructors have built a resistance playlist on Youtube, which we will post on the Instagram and Facebook pages. Click to view/listen to the iCAMP Resist DIY Project 2020.
