Marion Dreamkeepers is a summer program where 10 youth of color from Marion, Ohio lead a participatory action research project to interrogate policies, practices, programs, norms, and behaviors that have produced inequitable outcomes that chronically disadvantage communities of color. The young people develop strategies for reducing harm and eliminating racism.
