This week, Generation Justice youth producers speak to elders in the Albuquerque community who have paved the way to justice by dedicating their lives to activism and organizing. As part of the "One Albuquerque Challenge: Connecting Youth and Elders," GJ youth interviewed Albuquerque's social justice leaders. The goal of this challenge from the city's First Lady, Elizabeth Kistin Keller and the Mayors' Office, is to have a collection of projects that reflect the creativity, the diversity, and the needs of Albuquerque.
Tune in to hear from community leaders, Cathryn McGill, founder and director of the New Mexico Black History Organizing Committee; Father Frank Quintana, founding Pastor of the Blessed Oscar Romero Catholic Community; Beva Sanchez Padilla, of the Southwest Organizing Project & NM Con Mujeres; with, Yahaira Carreras, a youth organizer for the Southwest Organizing Project & NM Con Mujeres.
