Natural Hair Club at Columbus Alternative High School
A Peacemaking Project by Brittany S.
What is the injustice we are solving?
We have started a club that promotes awareness of culture and inclusion. Our organization has become a safe haven for females of color to express their individuality and natural beauty. As an organization, we make our scholastic environment a more diverse place by providing resources and education for marginalized communities as well as an appreciation of their heritage.

Go on social media make an account and follow literally everyone at your school/community until Instagram says you've followed too many people (then follow more people the next day lol). Then get girls to commit to take portraits and post their hair's natural beauty in a litlle social media campaign. Use hashtags like #naturalbeauty #blackisbeautiful etc.
I would also recommend you do some research and create a little 30-45 minute training on the history of hair with a focus on contributions made by people of color. Then schedule three or so trainings during lunch or after school and advertise using announcements, social media, and posters. Be sure to bring snacks and food to the training, high schoolers are very food-motivated, believe me as soon as you advertise food, the participation doubles. Then teach people on the beauty of natural beauty and you've created a micromovement in your school:)
