  • - Hi, I'm Alycia Pascual-Peña

  • - Hey, I'm Anjelika Washington

  • and this is Amplified.

  • (Dynamic Music)

  • - Can I help you?

  • - I don't know, can you?

  • - He's bothering you.

  • - He's harassing me.

  • - If you use that word, that means

  • I have to do a bunch of stuff.

  • - You know that your school is weird, right?

  • - Ignore Mitchell.

  • If you keep your head down

  • he'll move on and bother somebody else.

  • - I'm going to keep my head up, high.

  • - I hate that we are shoved aside, dismissed

  • Nobody does anything.

  • Nobody listens to us.

  • (Building music)

  • - The power is everything.

  • It's the reason why marginalized groups

  • of people are represented.

  • One way that I do that is social media.

  • I also do that by of course, educating myself.

  • I also talk to my elders and I ask them

  • about the experiences that they had.

  • - Females got to stick together.

  • - Number one untapped resource, women.

  • - There she goes.

  • - There are more of us than them.

  • - It's really beautiful that we've gotten

  • to the place that we're in.

  • I say it all the time.

  • I think I'm very grateful to be an artist

  • in this renaissance that's occurring

  • but it doesn't mean that there's still not so

  • much work to be done.

  • I think that we're just getting started.

  • And I think that we're here because

  • of the work of so many phenomenal Black

  • and Brown and Indigenous and Queer people that got us here.

  • And I think that it's just our time to carry that baton.

  • - I mean, if the point is to learn about the American dream

  • we should be reading about immigrants

  • or the working class or black mothers

  • or at least someone who doesn't already have

  • a mansion.

  • - It's super important.

  • Black and Brown voices need to be at the centers

  • of these movements and at the center of these stories

  • especially because for so long

  • we weren't deemed worthy of having our stories told.

  • - You know whats also messed up?

  • I don't like being voted best ass.

  • - You don't like it.

  • Why?

  • - Because historically Black women have been judged

  • by their asses and their hair.

  • And we are done with that.

  • - Period.

  • - Unfortunately, our society has put these types

  • of restrictions and rules, particularly

  • on women to just take whatever you're given

  • and particularly women of color.

  • That we should just be grateful

  • for everything that we're given.

  • And we shouldn't ask for too much

  • and we shouldn't raise our voices

  • and we shouldn't have pride for ourselves

  • and demand what we're worth.

  • - A lot of time these horrible ideologies

  • are just perpetuated

  • by people who have completely bought into a lie.

  • And we see that within Moxie.

  • We see that this school,

  • unfortunately normalizes misogyny

  • and sexism, that changes when we frankly put a name

  • to the things going on as we try to do

  • within Moxie and avidly and vigorously speak

  • out against them, but also enact action.

  • - But that's where we're putting a stop to that.

  • And that's why Moxie girls fight back

  • - Good morning and welcome to the revolution, bam

  • - Lady power.

  • - Oh my goodness.

  • Can I say Indya Moore?

  • She is always talking about her relation to AfroLatinidad

  • and just speaking about it with such transparency and power.

  • That really empowers me as an Afro-Latina.

  • She is constantly giving resources and discussing the

  • the importance of the intersectionality of

  • the Queer community.

  • within these Black movements and specifically

  • transgender women.

  • And it's something that I really look to always

  • wanting to further my knowledge.

  • And I also just love her work.

  • She's just phenomenal.

  • And I can never take my eyes off of her.

  • - There is one person that I follow on Instagram.

  • I do not know her at all, but her name is Camaryn Alejandra.

  • I hope I'm saying that right, but that is

  • what her handle is.

  • And she's awesome.

  • She highlights so many areas of anti-racism and I really

  • appreciate all the work that she's doing.

  • She also creates a lot of resources

  • for people who want to

  • understand how to be a better ally and want to

  • understand how do I actually help amplify Black

  • and Brown voices.

  • So I definitely would check her out on Instagram.

  • Hi Camaryn.

  • I've never met you, but I appreciate all your work.

  • - I think we're just striving for better.

  • Which is powerful.

  • - We got to get to work.

  • - Like what's the goal?

  • - Revolution, baby.

  • (Dynamic music)
