A week after George Floyd's murder, the youth at Innovators for Purpose (iFp), shaken by the news, decided that they had two options: remain afraid or channel their fears and use their talents to make a difference. In collaboration with iFp founders Michael and Donna Dawson and mentors, iFp Teens used their creativity and tech savviness to build an augmented reality installation on the lawn of the Cambridge Public Library to address: How might we awaken people to the injustices in our society and inspire them to help us create a world that we ALL can believe in?

The installation will be available: Nov 5, 2020-April 30, 2021.
