"IMatter" New Haven
In partnership with the City of New Haven, we have created a city-wide Compassion Campaign that will feature 50-75 large scale banners on buildings, window
graphics in vacant storefronts, and illuminated 3D installations. We aim to enroll and unite the Greater New Haven community in bold, honest communication regarding the social and emotional challenges facing their youth while simultaneously beautifying the city.
You Matter too! Create your PowerPost with the "IMatter" app and declare your
self-worth to the world! "IMatter" PowerPosts give youth everywhere the opportunity to be included in the movement. Simply download the "IMatter" app onto your smart phone and add your photo and "IMatter" statement. Your PowerPost will be added to our Instagram page.
"IMatter" Voices initiates vital dialogue between generations. Youth featured in “IMatter” installations are invited to candidly share their compelling stories. This insightful, private listening experience offers an opportunity to learn about the issues that today's youth are facing directly from teens and young adults. These excerpts of long-form interviews –"IMatter" Moments – are also broadcasted on radio programs and podcasts. Click to hear Sierra's "IMatter" Moment.
