Malik’s Connect With AFSC

This summer I had a blast doing service. I learned all about the prison industrial complex, mass incarceration, and solitary confinement. These are all dense issues that I learnt about with other highschool and college students. It was a transformative experience because the entire time I didn’t feel like I was doing service. I was learning new things everyday and then putting what I learned into practice. We ended up making a couple of public service announcement videos and documentaries to raise awareness about the issues. The work I did with AFSC allowed for me to get engrossed in the issues and to learn as much as I could while simultaneously putting the knowledge to action. I got to meet so many different people all working for and learning about the same issue. It was one of the best experiences of my life. I would encourage anyone to definetly learn more by going to afsc.org.
