CLA's INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL PROGRAM 2015

What If This Happened to You?
In 2013, CLA's SPOTLIGHT ON THE ARTS program provided a platform for teens who were harassed by San Francisco police officers to describe their experiences in a short video, What If This Happened To You?. The teens in this program learned interviewing techniques, as well as sound and camera techniques, under the direction of CLA's Spotlight on the Arts program staff. They also interviewed a knowledgeable attorney about how they should respond in such situations.
A short essay describing the background of the making of this video with links to descriptions of relevant research is posted on our blog HERE.
