¡Palante! The Young Lords was a collaboration between students from New Haven public high schools, Yale School of Medicine, & Yale School of Forestry. This project aimed to inject a necessary dialogue about inequity in the built environment missing from educational frameworks and to develop an intentional academy and community discussion through the lens of a historical Puerto Rican figure, Iris Morales. Through the formation of a student street team, we hosted workshops to co-design messaging, communication strategies and marketing materials targeting impacted New Haven populations.
