Check out the video from IMPTXDESIGN, Design to Better [Our Community] Summer Academy's youth-led showcase featuring youth prototypes for addressing racial and health inequities.

In Creative Reaction Lab’s Design to Better [Our Community] programs, Black and Latinx local high school students interested in entrepreneurship, creativity, community development, and design gain hands-on experience in making change in their community and fighting for racial justice through design.

Through the intensive six-week summer program, participants explored Black and Latinx history and current events and learned about ways to make positive change in your community. Participants collaborated with local residents to come up with ideas to address an issue in the community and to make those ideas happen in reality.
