A project of EDIT
In Minnesota, an estimated 160,000 children miss school every day out of fear of attack or
intimidation by other students. EDIT helps put an end to discrimination and bullying by
empowering youth participants to take a stand against the social justice issues they feel are
most important in their schools and communities. In 2010, 95% of EDIT participants felt
safe and included because of their participation in EDIT programming.
Raquel, a 12-year-old EDIT participant, helped stop discrimination in her school by inviting
Jenny, a student with a physical disability, to join her group for a class project. Raquel
says, “After learning about people with disabilities and the importance of accepting all
people from EDIT, I wanted to include Jenny… even though other students are afraid to
work with her because of her disability.” Raquel is working to EDIT the world by changing
her own attitudes and actions.
