How a Troop of Grade School Girls are Fighting for Justice
Day 50: Social Justice. Youth activists are paving the way to create just communities for all. Today, we're inviting your family to think about the ways in which you show up for social justice every day. Check out this video about a troop of young girls of color who are standing up for change.

Honeycomb kids, like the Radical Monarchs, are our next generation of changemakers. Today, and every day, it's important for us to stand up for what we believe in, educate ourselves, and work to make positive change in our communities. While you're on your social justice journey, remember that taking care of yourself by wearing a mask and social distancing is a vital part of caring for your community.
Let's Talk
After watching the video about the Radical Monarchs use the questions below to kick-start a great conversation with your family:

  • What inspired you about the work of the Radical Monarchs?

  • Why is it important to stand up for what you believe in? To make your voice heard?

  • What positive changes do you hope to make in your community?

  • Bonus! Do some research about a social justice issue you are passionate about. Make a mini presentation and teach your family what you learned.

Do Something
One Small Step
Let's talk! One Small Step is a movement to counter contempt and dehumanization through acts of listening and engagement. Our friends at StoryCorps started this initiative to encourage people to have conversations with people they disagree with to foster understanding and change. Reach out to a family member or friend and let's talk!

Having meaningful conversations can spark learning, passion, and understanding. StoryCorps provides questions to guide your conversation as well as recordings of other participants here. Whether you record your conversation or not, your words and deep listening make a difference!

Once you have finished recording, complete the details section and your story will be saved in the national archives. Under "community/partner organization" fill in "The Honeycomb Project" and all the stories from our Hive will be saved together!
Our city needs your support! By purchasing some of our Honeycomb at Home loungewear, you help us spread the magic of volunteering throughout our city. Every $100 we raise provides free programming to a new local family. We so appreciate your support. Order now!
