Pearl Webb, Isabella Fassi and Joshua Smith talk about their experiences interning with AFSC Kansas City during the 2012-2013 school year.
Pearl Webb, Isabella Fassi, and Joshua Smith started interning with AFSC in August 2012, to lead youth civic engagement and social action projects in the Kansas City area. Along with Program Coordinator Ira Harritt, the interns teach high school-aged youth about issues in their communities, injustice in the U.S., and how they can help put an end to the injustice and promote greater peace.

Thanks to all Kansas Citians who participated in the Occupy the Dream: Dr. King on Economic Justice and the Occupy Wall Street Movement forum on January 16. The event was powerful and engaged over 200 area residents in consideration of King’s call for economic justice, the civil rights movement and the Occupy movement.
