Sinopse

On Blast is an organizing tool for the Philadelphia Student Union. We know that students have deep analysis about their schools and communities. We know that young people's voices need to be heard before real structural change can take place in our public schools. At On Blast, we choose subject matter that amplifies the voices of those not being heard-- especially young people-- and those who are routinely hurt and misrepresented by the dominant media. We are using media to organize for the human right to a high quality public education for all students.
