Reflexión:

¿Cómo profundizó el proyecto la comprensión de la injusticia en tu equipo?

This project deepened my team's understanding on the injustice by bringing a group of African American students together and helping them getting their voices heard and motivate one another.

¿Cómo cambió tu comunidad como resultado de tu proyecto?

I feel through this BSA the African American population at my school has gotten a lot closer.

¿Cuántas personas fueron impactadas por tu proyecto?

175

Explica cómo alcanzaste este número de participantes o el número de personas impactadas por el proyecto:

I came up with 175 because there are about 125 African American students at my school and 100 people from this population would attend meetings and such and enjoyed Alliance. And the leftover 75 students came from students of other minority groups that began a Latino Student Alliance and an Asian Cultural Union because of our stance on this injustice.

¿De qué manera aprendió más tu equipo sobre las personas afectadas por la injusticia?

My team learned more about the people affected by the injustice by having a open discussions and planned discussions once a week.

¿Qué aprendió tu equipo?

My team came up with ways to address racism, how to code switch in order to fit in with different crowds, and that you do get judged based on how you dress.

¿Qué desafíos superó tu equipo?

When we first started everyone was extremely rowdy and it was very hard to have genuine conversations.

¿Cómo involucraste a otros en el diseño, la realización o la expansión de este proyecto?

I have involved others in carrying out and expanding this project by creating a leadership team that helps create the planned discussions, looks over our work, and helps expands this project.

¿Qué consejo le darías a alguien que inicia un proyecto de paz?

I would say that this is the most supportive leadership program I have participated in. Writing down my plans and steps helped a lot. Also, this is the first time adults have told me to stand against an injustice and actually funded it for me. All in all, Peace First is extremely helpful.

Dear Aron, you need to celebrate your achievements. As you stated every project has a beginning and an end.

Some projects need a bold move like you did at the beginning. Sometimes it is hard until someone or somebody share your feeling and thoughts. But as you experienced when you walk the talk fellows start join you and to some extent surprise you by taking the lead.

I hope you learn a lot from your accomplished project.

Good Job.

Abeselom Samson is my name I am Peace first digital mentor.
