YC Spotlight: #Artbuild for Climate Justice March 2017

This Saturday marks Earth Day, and this weekend and next will host the March for Science, People’s Climate March, and other rallies, marches, and protests in Washington, New York, and other affiliated sites around the country. In preparation for the coming events, the Youth Channel joined WEACT for Environmental Justice and Brotherhood and Sister Sol in a day of art-making and activism.


Hear from Genesis Abreu from WEACT, a non-profit organization that helps mobilize community members from northern Manhattan to stand up for environmental injustices within their community, as she and Ingrid Romero from Brotherhood and Sister Sol discuss the intersection of art, culture, and activism, and how the arts can be a powerful form of engagement and resistance.


Watch now.


Tune in to MNN’s Youth Channel Monday through Friday from 6-7 pm on MNN4 (TWC 67, RCN 85, FiOS 36, and streaming live on MNN.org).
