OHSWEKEN – Following the Walk Against Violence through Six Nations, a video booth was set up to video tape Six Nations young people talking about any issues that they wanted to raise.
The raw tape will be edited into a Public Service Announcement by Artie Martin of Red Whip, which will be shown worldwide on TV, social media, YouTube and anywhere else they can get it shown.
One new idea is to have the PSA shown at the movie theatres before the feature film begins.
The theme of the message was “Youth and Resiliency,” and young people were asked four questions about what things are important to them to enrich themselves and make their community and the world a better place.
“We want the youth themselves to help make this year’s PSA’s and tell us what will work amongst their peers,” said an organizer.
