Youth UnMuted engages with displaced youth, facilitating workshops on-the-ground and inviting youth to contribute to the online Youth UnMuted Magazine. The Magazine provides a platform on which youth can advocate for themselves, offering readers globally a chance to view the world through their camera lenses, understand their lives through their poems and prose, and to feel their emotions through their artwork. Further, it does so by elevating youth’s own words while safeguarding them from manipulation and exploitation in their advocacy for social change. Youth UnMuted met Aref during a series of workshops on Lesvos Island in Greece. Aref, age 20 from Afghanistan, is very politically and socially aware of international events and is a beautiful poet. He wrote the poem, One Blood, as a message of solidarity with the families being separated at the US-Mexico border last summer, drawing parallels between what is happening at the boarder and what is occurring with refugees in Greece and beyond. His poem, and many other youth works, can be found in the first edition of the Youth UnMuted Magazine at www.youthunmuted.org/magazine [/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=1_3 layout=1_3 spacing= center_content=no link= target=_self min_height= hide_on_mobile=small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility class= id= background_color= background_image= background_image_id= background_position=left top background_repeat=no-repeat hover_type=none border_size=0 border_color= border_style=solid border_position=all border_radius= box_shadow=no dimension_box_shadow= box_shadow_blur=0 box_shadow_spread=0 box_shadow_color= box_shadow_style= padding_top= padding_right= padding_bottom= padding_left= margin_top= margin_bottom= animation_type= animation_direction=left animation_speed=0.3 animation_offset= last=no][fusion_imageframe image_id=3339|full max_width= style_type= blur= stylecolor= hover_type=none bordersize= bordercolor= borderradius= align=none lightbox=no gallery_id= lightbox_image= lightbox_image_id= alt= link= linktarget=_self hide_on_mobile=small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility class= id= animation_type= animation_direction=left animation_speed=0.3 animation_offset=]https://www.theworldasitcouldbe.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Youth-Unumted-issue-1-magazine__Page_04.jpg[/fusion_imageframe][fusion_separator style_type=single solid hide_on_mobile=small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility class= id= sep_color= top_margin=10 bottom_margin=10 border_size= icon= icon_circle= icon_circle_color= width= alignment=center /][fusion_button link=https://www.facebook.com/YouthUnMuted/ text_transform= title= target=_blank link_attributes= alignment=center modal= hide_on_mobile=small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility class= id= color=default button_gradient_top_color= button_gradient_bottom_color= button_gradient_top_color_hover= button_gradient_bottom_color_hover= accent_color= accent_hover_color= type= bevel_color= border_width= size= stretch=default shape= icon=fa-facebook fab icon_position=left icon_divider=no animation_type= animation_direction=left animation_speed=0.3 animation_offset=]Youth Unmuted on Facebook[/fusion_button][fusion_separator style_type=single solid hide_on_mobile=small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility class= id= sep_color= top_margin=10 bottom_margin=10 border_size= icon= icon_circle= icon_circle_color= width= alignment=center /][fusion_button link=https://www.facebook.com/YouthUnMuted/ text_transform= title= target=_blank link_attributes= alignment=center modal= hide_on_mobile=small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility class= id= color=default button_gradient_top_color= button_gradient_bottom_color= button_gradient_top_color_hover= button_gradient_bottom_color_hover= accent_color= accent_hover_color= type= bevel_color= border_width= size= stretch=default shape= icon=fa-twitter fab icon_position=left icon_divider=no animation_type= animation_direction=left animation_speed=0.3 animation_offset=]Youth Unmuted on Twitter[/fusion_button][fusion_separator style_type=single solid hide_on_mobile=small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility class= id= sep_color= top_margin=10 bottom_margin=10 border_size= icon= icon_circle= icon_circle_color= width= alignment=center /][fusion_button link=https://www.instagram.com/youthunmuted/ text_transform= title= target=_blank link_attributes= alignment=center modal= hide_on_mobile=small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility class= id= color=default button_gradient_top_color= button_gradient_bottom_color= button_gradient_top_color_hover= button_gradient_bottom_color_hover= accent_color= accent_hover_color= type= bevel_color= border_width= size= stretch=default shape= icon=fa-instagram fab icon_position=left icon_divider=no animation_type= animation_direction=left animation_speed=0.3 animation_offset=]Youth Unmuted on Instagram[/fusion_button][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
