In 2019, Human Rights Initiative of North Texas (HRI) invited #MeWeIntl to pilot #MeWeTexas for its youth councils and caregivers, with a focus on supporting their mental health and improving their communications skills as a way to amplify their community engagement and leadership.
In 2020, the Global Pandemic required a shift in programming from in-person to virtual. #MeWeTexas led a pilot Hub with their youth council members, and participated in publishing a billboard in Georgia as part of #MeWeIntl’s partnership with ForFreedom’s WideAwake2020 campaign.
For 2021, #MeWeTexas will pilot the program with their Adult Cohort of immigrant and refugee community members in North Texas. They will collaborate in a number of exercises with their youth representatives, and cross-country partners in Honduras and Mexico.
Representation of Creative Content will be a main goal |Throughout this year of pilot hubs, which could include 1-3 publications of community members work which could be in the form of a billboard, mini-documentary, stories in a digital book, and ongoing social media sharing for representation of the intervention locally, state-wide, and nationally.
