2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Mari will facilitate the creation of a short film to document the lives of the staff and youth of T.U.F.F. (Turn Up for Freedom), an arts based activist driven leadership program that uses participatory action research to creatively address the injustices that Black and Latina girls are facing. The project will teach participants video and photography skills in order to document their experience at T.U.F.F. as well as their lives at home, school, and the block. The intent of this project is to use the video as an organizing tool with other middle and high school students, offer political education, and show how young people resist and experience the school to prison pipeline.
