The Bigger Picture, Youth Speaks

2019 YBCA 100 Honoree

The Bigger Picture is a partnership between spoken word organization Youth Speaks and UCSF’s Center for Vulnerable Populations, the only educational initiative to merge the arts with public health in the diabetes-prevention landscape. The Bigger Picture’s youth leadership model changes perceptions and amplifies the voices of young people who are taking on the sugary drink industry, which disproportionately targets low-income communities of color.
