Fighting Discrimination in All Its Forms

Richard’s Blueprint addressed the lack of visibility around issues of oppression and discrimination, specifically towards LGBTQ youth, in the community. In addition to raising awareness of policies like DOMA, the lack of Safe School legislation, and the three systems of power (capitalism, patriarchy, white supremacy) that institutionalize these problems, he created a curriculum and an artisitic space for students and community members to openly talk about issues affecting society on local and national levels in order to empower them to become advocates for change.
