What if teenagers felt they had a voice in the future of our country? This election season, the Student Reporting Labs network of more than 100 schools across the country asked middle and high school students to talk to the next president about the issues they feel need to be addressed.

Through poetry, Erykah Williams voices the fear she feels as the sister of a young black man and asks the next president to do something about it.

Produced by Sam Delesantos, Landrey Terry and Erykah Williams, students of Vista PEAK Preparatory in Aurora, Colorado. Instruction provided by SRL Connected Educator Jason Burchard. Station support provided by Rocky Mountain PBS.
