Here is the trailer for The Salinas Project by Carolyn Brown that highlights the struggles of youth in Salinas and their resiliency to get to where they are right now. The young leaders in this film have at one point or another been involved with East Salinas Building Healthy Communities trying to bring about change to the community they love. These exceptional community leaders have taken different paths; however, they continue to change the narrative of Salinas through various means. One of the youth featured in the this film is continuing to work towards obtaining her B.A., another young leader has begun a new chapter in her life by studying abroad in Puerto Rico, while another has become part of a renowned Regional Mexican group This film captures but a small glimpse of the hardships faced by youth in our community,yet demonstrates the magnitude of their resilience.
