In a small school a little north and a little west of downtown Durham, N.C., a group of 11-, 12-, and 13-year-olds has been busy organizing a field trip.
Watch as a junior high school's gay-straight alliance, GLOW, for "Gay, Lesbian, or Whatever," embarks on an adventure in civic engagement, with real consequences for many of the club's members.
"They don't really see kids as having an idea of how they want their future to be like," said Sarah, a GLOW member, "but when we actually voice our opinion, it really does make a difference."
