Our Interview with Shad
During the interview everyone was really excited to meet Shad. People kept on jumping around when he joined the meeting. We were just so happy. We talked about social justice and we asked him questions about social justice and what racism means to him these were some of the questions about social justice:
What does social justice mean to you? – Yasmina
What can young people do to take action and raise awareness about social justice? – Nathaniel
We also asked questions about his rapping and his history through rapping. Who inspired him? Does he like to rap, Is it hard to rap,etc?
It was an exciting opportunity to have Shad come and talk about social justice!
Our Quote of the Week & The Green Party
We also learned about the Green Party. The Green Party is a party that cares a lot about the Earth. They care a lot about the planet and to save the world. We learned about Annamie Paul and Kate O’Connor. Annamie Paul is the first black woman to be a leader of the Green Party. Kate O’ Connor is 18 years old and she is planning to be the provincial Green Party Leader of British Columbia. Kate and Annamie both believe in climate actions and also human rights to all people.
