Getting Kids to Create

April 18, 2012
Izabela Grobelna Uniting America AmeriCorps Fellow

Uniting America brought together communities touched by incarceration and deportation by organizing a kid-friendly playroom at the April 5th Event: Forced Out! at UIC. This event brought together hundreds of people to reflect on both issues and find possible solutions. Youth performed spoken word, while others discussed the health impact of these issues in breakout sessions. The family-space was a time for all Uniting America fellows to bond with youth through games, and arts and crafts, while we also served as their mentors!
