In honor of the late John Lewis, a towering figure in the US fight for racial equality, the Global Co Lab Network launched its 8th teen-led SDG Hub – this one aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal # 10 – indicator #2 – on Reducing Inequalities.  

The Racial Justice Hub meets virtually weekly to discuss and plan its various projects, led by Akshat Sinha and Aysha Nunes. Currently, it is working on educating whites to be allies, increasing teen awareness of implicit biases, and is launching a Racial Justice Arts Challenge, empowering teens to express their feelings via various forms of art to work towards a world free of racial injustice. The Challenge will also seek to use art to amplify youth voices in telling the stories of people of color and perspectives on racial injustices around the world. 

The Hub is eager for more teens to join to launch their own projects that they are passionate about. All teens globally age 13-18 are encouraged to join the Hub here by filling out this form that will help them get on board with our Hubs.
