VIDEO: COMMON GOOD: Mission Never Changed

The year 2020 marked the Ten-year anniversary of my time at the Global Youth Village. Ten years after spending weeks with Iraqi and American youth developing peace-building skills and cultural pluralism I was invited back to discuss how a decade of service and activism has brought to life my idea of global citizenry.

We discuss ideas of the common good globally, the global reach structural racism, and the (African) American tradition of sustainable liberation work.
