CA Youth #FlipTheFrame!

WHO ARE WE:

Californians for Justice and the Student Voice Campaign is flipping the frame by collecting hundreds of selfies of youth across California. #FliptheFrame challenges the stereotyped narratives that exist and thrive in the media, our schools, and communities. 

By saying what WE ARE NOT… And WHAT WE ARE…we are flipping the frame on the stereotypes that hurt our communities by sharing the stories that empower us.

WE BELIEVE IN: 

  1. OPPORTUNITY: Equal opportunity is a basic American value. Because of stereotypes and attitudes across race, students of color face unfair barriers to success. All students should have the opportunity to succeed regardless of their race, gender, and socio-economic status.
  2. FREEDOM FROM DISCRIMINATION: all students should free from being placed within the stereotyped narratives that exist within our media, schools and communities.
  3.  PUBLIC RESPONSIBILITY: We believe that we all share responsibility as students, teachers, administrators, and decision makers to shift the negative perceptions and attitudes of underserved students and students of color.
  4. SELF-WORTH: Every student regardless of background, race, gender, citizenship and economic status should feel valued, and perceived as valuable members of their schools & communities.

We are calling on the students and communities across the State to:

  • Post, tweet and/or submit a #StopStereotyping Selfie to #FliptheFrame on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or send to info@caljustice.org
  • JOIN US in our #FlippingtheFrame Campaign Twitter Conversation on March 12th at 3:33PM to discuss how flipping the frame of our stories and communities is important!
  • Comment, retweet, and repost #FliptheFrame Youth Selfies

TAKE ACTION & JOIN US on March 12th! Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for live updates!

You can participate in this project by submitting/posting/tweeting a photo of yourself holding a sign saying:

"My name is [your name] and I'M NOT [stereotype]”#StopStereotyping #[YourCity] #FlipTheFrame

OUR VISION:
Californians for Justice believes that in order to achieve the transformative change that we want to see in our schools, and communities we must create systematic change that transforms POLICIES, PERCEPTIONS, and PRACTICES, so that the voices of low-income, immigrant, LGBTIQ students and students of color are HEARD, VALUED, and REFLECTED in the decisions that directly impact their lives.
