YO SOS: 99 Problems

When you can't find love, but you are willing to give it.
School, home, and boyfriend don't want to hear it. 
What would you be willing to do 
with all those barriers coming at you?


YO S.O.S. Media Arts Campaign Showcase, featuring Urban Art Beat and Theatre of the Oppressed NYC

Youth Organizing to Save Our Streets (YO S.O.S.) gathers high school youth who want to reduce gun violence and promote community healing and youth power. Together, YO S.O.S. creates campaigns, presentations, and events to spread the message of anti-violence to our peers and the broader community. This spring, Youth Organizers collaborated with teaching artists from Theatre of the Oppressed NYC and Urban Art Beat to create a Media Arts Campaign. Join us as we debut an interactive theatre show, titled "99 Problems" and a hip-hip song and video produced by the Youth Organizers. 

Can we, stick together 
And put the guns down 
Pick up the love 
And spread it around 
Stand by eachother 
And Hold one another down
— Urban Art Beat
