Sixty-five years after Brown v. Board of Education, New York City’s public schools are among the most segregated in the nation.

Tired of decisions about their schools being made without their voice, a coalition of high school students formed Teens Take Charge, a student advocacy group that is calling on Mayor Bill de Blasio to racially, socioeconomically and academically integrate New York City’s public high schools.

Watch Brave New Film’s latest #YouthInAction film and find out how students of New York City are taking their schools and futures into their own hands.
