I am Kiara and I am advocating to decrease teen pregnancy in Washington, D.C. I believe teen pregnancy is important because everyone in D.C. is affected by it, especially people in ward 7 and ward 8. To decrease teen pregnancy, the government needs to fund more afterschool programs so kids can stay active throughout the school year.
My name is Devonte and I am trying to get support for my community. I believe a better community is good because it gives more things to do. My photographs of the gardens show the importance of teen pregnancy because even through the struggle there’s a brighter day. I'm fighting to end teen pregnancy but to do that we need better basketball courts.
My name is Domonique (Darnell) and I am a young black African-American who loves women. I love to make money and music. Why do I believe that family is important? Because without family you have nothing. My photographs of myself show the importance of my inner self. This is why we need more programs such as DCPNI. Now at least 5-10 teens know about teen pregnancy. Therefore, if there were more programs, then more teens would be better educated.
