The “Where Do I Belong?” Project is a semester long social media project exploring thoughts and issues surrounding immigration in our community and the world at large. The project is led by the students of Augustus Hawkins High School and Foshay Learning Center.
We intend to foster discuss and inform our community about this complex and sensitive topic. Our posts will include interviews with civic leaders and citizens involved in advocating and serving both sides of the issue.
We treasure civil discussion. So click on a post, watch the video and join in. We can’t wait to hear from you.
Where do I belong?
This question perplexes everybody, but none more than the young.
The students of the Media Aid Center were drawn into a conversation surrounding their family members and friends hiding in the shadows of the immigration issue. Soon it became apparent not only how polarizing the conversation was but also how little information we actually know about the immigration issue and the immigration process.
Students from both the Augustus F. Hawkins H.S. and the Foshay Learning Center decided to design a place where others could contribute to the conversation and they could better come to understand the issue. During the upcoming year, we will find facts to discuss, people and policymakers to interview, and information necessary for young people to make a decision.
With the help of a grant from the Frieda C. Fox Family Foundation, we intend to hold a youth conference in Los Angeles to allow a greater direct exchange of information. With technical support from the Media Aid Center along with Educate ~ Motivate~ Graduate (E.M.G.) Enterprise, and training support from the Constitutional Rights Foundation, we will open a forum for the discussion of youth issues.We hope immigration is the first of many topics. Through journalistic exploration, and open-minded advocacy will to tackle many of the questions inherent in the question “Where Do I Belong?”
