High School West leadership students Brooke Vitulli and Marie Carpenter were named finalists in the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights “Speak Truth To Power” video contest sponsored by the American Federation of Teachers and the Tribeca Film Institute. The video, which they completed in leadership after researching important leaders who have been activists in civil or human rights movements, required that they address a certain human rights issue and explain how a chosen individual has worked to defend, promote, protect or advance human rights.

Brooke and Marie created a video about the #MeToo movement and the work of the movement’s leader Tarana Burke. Their video will join other top submissions across the nation and be recognized at the Tribeca Film Festival in April.
