As part of their winning Better World Project, students at Lodestar in Oakland, California (a Lighthouse Community Public School) are creating podcasts challenging Islamophobia. 

They describe their project this way: "Sixth grade students will be journalists and printmakers as they lift up the voices of Muslim and Arab members of their community, focusing on the common roots of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam and experiences of Islamophobia. Ultimately, students will create written, spoken, and artistic work that promotes religious tolerance in their community."

Now, their work has been featured on Bay Area radio station KPFA, as part of the "We Rise" series. You can listen here

We're so proud to be part of a community containing students who contribute so meaningfully to building a better world!
