When he was in eighth grade, Giancarlos Rodriguez led chants at a rally for the first time. Now he’s one of dozens of High School students in Philadelphia’s Kensington neighborhood who are fighting for good schools and control over their education. When the School District puts two beloved neighborhood schools on the list for closure, the community takes action to keep them open. Students take us into the work of Youth United for Change.
Youth Uprising is part of the documentary series "Groundwork - Justice in the birthplace of America" produced by the Media Moblizing Project.
Films For Action empowers citizens with the information we need to help create a more just, sustainable, and democratic society.
We receive no government or corporate funding and rely on our supporters to keep us going. Donate today.
