Young Social Impact Heroes: Why and How Isabella Hanson of the ‘National Youth Foundation’ Is Helping To Change Our World

Watching repeated news stories and footage about the killings of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd pushed me into taking action. I could not sit by and watch Black people having their lives taken without taking action. Between the horrific news stories about Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, COVID-19 and school closures, I felt that there was a need for space for youth to process the tragedy. I wanted to create a space for the youth to have a voice for self-expression about why Black Lives Matter and a place for their voices to be heard. I think that it was cathartic for the participants to use the “I Matter” platform to process their reactions to these killings.
