About This Episode
Members of the Peapod Adobe Youth Voices Academy in Redwood City, Ca, collaborated with representatives from the NOH8 Campaign to create a song and video which promotes the campaign’s “anti-hate” message. The NOH8 Campaign is a photographic silent protest against the ruling of California’s Proposition 8. In the brainstorming process of the project, the members of the Peapod Adobe Youth Voices Academy decided to address all forms of hate including race, gender, religion and so forth. By expressing their own opinions on the subject matter, along with visual images that support their lyrics, the artists hope that the song and video will raise awareness of these issues and encourage their peers to be more understanding, tolerant and accepting of each others’ differences. The project was proposed and managed by Diego Petterson from the “Somewhere2turn” community outreach project. Diamante Machuca-Horton and Richard Kaho wrote and performed the song. Their good friend and fellow Peapod Adobe Youth Voices Academy member, P.J. Poloai, edited the video sequence.
