Fenix Youth Project
SALISBURY, MD -- 1/13/22 -- Amber Green is an activist and organizer who runs Fenix Youth Project, an arts program for youth up to age 24, that provides a safe space for young people to receive services, learn job skills, and provide mutual aid for the community. She is also running for County Council in Wicomico County.
Her view from the front lines of disadvantaged youth speaks directly to the intergenerational effects of racism and racial terrorism on the Black community. âThis didn't just manifest out of nowhere. This came from history, and we have to talk about lynchings because lynchings are still happening."â¦AndrÃ© Chung/ICTJ
