Just Try to Stop Us, A Portrait of
Four Youth Activists
8 Min, 6 Sec

Apathy rules America. Or at least that’s the impression most people have. Many people are dissatisfied with the way the country is run, but don’t do anything about it. Meanwhile, there is a powerful minority who are politically active. Many of these activists are youth. The problem we address in our video is the mythology that students are apathetic and ignorant.

This video features several students at Oakland High who are politically active. We aim to show the audience, not only that there are kids in Oakland High who have strong convictions and are willing to do the work tosee them realized, but also to motivate latent activism in viewers.
