In 2020, #MeWeTexas was supposed to launch, but the Global Pandemic required a shift, which the HRI community was open and willing to try virtually. #MeWeTexas led a pilot Hub with their youth council members, participated to the stories of a COVID-19 book that is being published and contributed to a new exercise, where a youth from Honduras, shared his words and art, which were then published on a Billboard in the USA with partner ForFreedoms, through their 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.
