Let's Fight, America

My poem is about fighting for your human rights, and knowing what belongs to you and how to stop it from being taken away.

By Robel from Project Citizen in Connecticut

Red, White and blue are the colors that symbolize freedom

Fight for your Right

Fight for your education

Fight for your family

Fight for your race

Fight for your sexuality

Fight for your neighbor

Fight, Fight , Fight

You know your right

Look for your light

Otherwise you just might

Lose your sight of the biggest prize

Project Citizen '19

Project Citizen is a youth writing lab that is offered as part of the Connecticut Writing Project at Fairfield University. The mission of Project Citizen is to empower young writers to engage in issues of social and political importance through a variety of genres in order to both find their voice and to become fully realized citizens in our democracy. Project Citizen brings together students from school districts and towns in Fairfield county that represent a variety of economic, racial, ethnic, and religious demographic groups in an effort to break down the "zip code apartheid" that stands in the way of true collaborative learning.
