The State of BIPOC Youth Survey: Free Movie Screening

November 4, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Join us for a FREE movie screening of Blue Beetle! Happening on Saturday, November 4th, 2023, from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM in Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, and Oxnard.

In Honor of Dia De Los Muertos, Future Leaders of America (FLA) youth will screen the movie Blue Beetle. The movie prominently features Mexican and Mexican-American characters and beautifully showcases our culture. Blue Beetle also highlights the struggles and challenges faced by members of the Latino/a/x and immigrant communities alike, such as education, immigration, deportation, over-criminalization, and economic and health disparities.

This event will feature activities such as face painting, an altar exhibition, community resources, and the opportunity to learn about Future Leaders of America’s “The State of BIPOC Youth Survey.” FLA leads this community-participatory research study in partnership with Dr. Victor Rios, Associate Dean of Social Sciences & Professor of Sociology. The project consists of a survey and focus groups documenting assets and needs among youth of color ages 14-26 in Ventura, Santa Barbara, Monterey, and San Luis Obispo Counties.

Findings from the study will emphasize racial equity by focusing on health and wellbeing, education and achievement, Spanish-speaking communities, Indigenous youth, system-impacted youth, Black students’ experiences, and school and community safety. By sharing their thoughts, experiences, and concerns via the survey, BIPOC youth can enact change through research, data dissemination, policy change, and advocacy. For more information, visit:
