Seventh-grader Jose Guerrero and his fellow Changemakers at Collegiate Hall heard complaints about police using excessive force against people of color, so they decided to do something about it.

The students organized a community dinner to be held in February to raise awareness and elevate the voices of those who have been affected. Then they’ll present the stories to the Tulsa City Council.


It might not be much, but Jose hopes it’ll be enough to at least ignite a conversation about an issue many believe has been long ignored.


“This makes me feel happy,” he said. “It makes me feel like I’m actually making a change in our community.”
