Project Spotlight : "People Are People" @ The Michael J. Petrides School
Project Spotlight at Petrides helped shed light on many issues teens face. Students wrote original scenes that primarily focused on violence prevention. They titled their collection of scenes People Are People which includes the topics of body image, domestic violence, sexual pressure, LGBT violence, cutting, and suicide.
Petrides seniors Alexandria Popick and Grace Reinertsen performed their original scene "It's What You Do" written at Project Spotlight: People Are People. In this scene one friend helps the other understand the meaning of "sexting" and that there are far reaching consequences of sharing explicit photos.
