Social Justice Sewing Academy

Location:  Antioch, CA
United States
Project Description: 

In a world of uncertainty and uneasy policies, laws, regulations, biases, stereotypes, assumptions, and prejudices what are we to do?  In a world full of isms: racism, sexism, ableism, classism and so much more, what are we to do? The Social Justice Sewing Academy empowers young people to use their experiences and intelligence and creativity to sew their worlds showing how they see problems and opportunities for growth and change.
