Multi-Ethnic Concerns Club

Critical Exposure is partnering with Wilson High School's Multi-Ethnic Concerns Club for the 2012-2013 school year. Students founded the club last school year in response to the racism they witnessed in the classroom. Now, with Critical Exposure involved, students are learning photography and advocacy tactics to document and eliminate racism and discrimination from the classroom.

During the spring semester, students chose to advocate for an ethnic studies class. They met with their principal and assistant principal to discuss the class, and ultimately got in confirmed! The new class will be offered in 2014.
