THE PUSHOUTS tells the story of millions of young people in the U.S. referred to as “dropouts” who, more often than not, are pushed out of school for reasons beyond their control. Through the lens of teen gang member turned professor Victor Rios, forty pushout youth and a transformative summer in Watts, THE PUSHOUTS interrogates crucial questions of race, class, and power at a particularly urgent time.

THE IMPACT CAMPAIGN Via national screening and discussion tours with key audiences (e.g. middle and high school students, teachers and administrators, youth development workers, policymakers and others); the creation of short form media content and through periodic calls action, THE PUSHOUTS campaign works with partner organizations and within movements toward the transformation of a status quo that stigmatizes and criminalizes, rather than educating and offering meaningful opportunities to, countless deserving, talented, and overlooked and underserved youth.
