Pathways 2 Power is a student-led activist group originated from Thurgood Marshall Academy, but inclusive of the city as a whole. We are starting conversations about issues going on in our backyard that have been normalized, including violence, crime, housing insecurity, mental health, and more. Our organization works to create a seat at the table in decision making that directly impacts our community. We are making change in our communities and finding ways to include our voices in the larger conversations in the city concerning violence. We are working to create a healthy community that lives up to the DC pride we have.
Successfully Launched our PSA made in partnership with Ground Media at Ben's Chili Bowl. Decision makers and media from across the city were in attendance and got a chance to ask P2P members questions about how to make this city safer.
P2P joined forces with Lauryn Renford's project to fund a mural honoring 6 DC slain teens last school year.
Hosting focus groups both inside the TMA community and in the greater DC community to help listen to the youth around P2P's four pillars.
P2P has engaged in numerous community meetings to bring youth voice into the conversation and make decisions in the areas that impact us the most.
P2P members have been key note speakers on numerous panels and at different citywide marches and events.
