Freedom Fighters’ Forum

The Freedom Fighter’s Forum is virtual space that connects young leaders around the world who are committed to a cause of social justice. Zephaniis goal is to create a space using digital technology for an online platform of live-engagement between the students who are fighting for social justice in America (such as through the Youth & College Freedom Fighters program at the NAACP) and those who are fighting for causes related to freedom abroad. The purpose is to create channels of learning and allow socially-responsible students to draw upon a collective strength with the understanding that young people have always been and will always be at the forefront fighting for positive social, structural, and cultural change. Her Blueprint project proposal was selected as a runner-up for the Innovative Startup Award ($25,000 prize).
