Recently, youth-driven marches such as ‘March for Our Lives’ have received extensive media coverage. While many kids and teens are participating in these marches, what happens to those who want a different outlet? Have adults pressured youth into marching?

On this episode of Shrinking It Down, Dr. Gene Beresin and Dr. Steve Schlozman are joined by Dr. Ellen Braaten to discuss the effects of activism on adolescence, particularly in a world of media mania. Tune in as they advocate for more student narratives and highlight ways for kids to be heard beyond marching.

Thank you for joining us in this journey and conversation. If you have a question about youth activism that we didn’t answer, we’d love to hear from you!
