Culture Project

Un proyecto de construcción de paz de Logan N.

¿Cuál es la injusticia que estamos intentando resolver?

An injustice that I want to change in my community is cultural ignorance. At my school, there is a lot people who are ignorant and uneducated about other cultures, which leads to blatant racism. This is unacceptable, and it creates an atmosphere where certain groups of people are not welcome.
