The “Giving Out Change” campaign provides an opportunity for us (young people) to talk about multiculturalism, xenophobia (fear of difference and foreigners) and racism through an online blog forum. Through this process we can connect to one another virally. We can give out change by sharing our attitudes, perspectives and activities with one another in a way that engages our own hearts, our schools and our communities. We invite you to check out the “get involved” section and join the effort:
Think about the questions posed each week
Discuss the questions and insight with yourself, school and communities
Respond and share your thoughts through the online blog
Mission: to create a space for young people to discuss root causes of xenophobia (fear of difference and foreigners) and racism; to use these conversations to think through the strengths and weakness of multiculturalism.
