Climate Kids Ambassador Working to Advance Equity and Inclusion at Local Middle School

On today's blog, learn how Climate Kids Ambassador Amira Azoulay leveraged her community service project to advance equity and inclusion at Pacific Beach Middle School!



Climate Kids Ambassador Amira Azoulay leveraged her community service project to advance equity and inclusion at Pacific Beach Middle School. As part of her 8th grade service project, Amira dedicated 25 hours to create an extensive outreach project focused on teachers and how they can create a more inclusive classroom and school environment. Building off the book "The Black Friend" by Frederick Joseph, Amira created a 15 minute informational video that defined and personalized topics such as historical and systemic racism, microaggressions, privilege, inclusive language, and strategies for confronting inequality.


The Climate Science Alliance donated copies of the book to the first 5 teachers who responded to Amira's video with a commitment to take active steps to support anti-racism activities in the school and classroom. The books were claimed within a day! We are so proud of and inspired by the youth that have been part of the Climate Kids program over the years and look forward to the good work ahead.
