Poverty in Haiti, fumbling rescue efforts during Hurricane Katrina, medical racism against prisoners are topics that are barely thought about by teenagers.
But Brooklyn teens thought that these sensitive, complex issues needed exposure – and create games to do just that.

The nonprofit’s Playing 4 Keeps after school program has kids meeting twice a week after school to talk about global topics and develop a social game. ‘’You have to figure out how to generalize [the issue], so it works in the game context, without trivializing it,’’ said Joseph."
