The Bushwick Radio Rookies workshop was held in conjunction with Make the Road by Walking Inc, a non-profit organization which promotes organizing and activism in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Its youth leadership programs work with high school students to develop their organizing and communication skills, and to enable them to become more effective advocates for social justice. These stories won a Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, a National Federation of Community Broadcasters Golden Reel, and the David S. Barr High School Journalism Award.
