After an extended break I'm thrilled to finally ring in the new year with the latest interview: a conversation with Project Attica founder and director Anthony Posada. Entering its fifth year, Anthony and I talk about how Project Attica uses t-shirt design workshops to give young people a voice on issues that matter most to them. Chatting in a Union Square cafe, I learned more about the stop-and-frisk that sparked the idea to the empowerment youth feel when given an avenue of expression as well as their plans to work with students displaced by violence in Colombia.
A fine assortment of links from which to choose...
- Always a good idea to start with the basics: Project Attica's home page
- Be sure to try the always-popular Facebook and Twitter
- Get involved yourself and contact them
So I'd like to send a huge "thanks!" out to Anthony Posada who followed cryptic directions to find me tucked into a corner of Manhattan then stuck with me through good times and technical difficulties. Of course, I need to thank friend-of-the-podcast Angela who you can find in episode 2! And I was connected to both of these wonderful people through Jaclyn R. tree. Thanks Jaclyn!http://www.bensound.com
