SCENARIOS USA INC wrote -Scenarios USA is a national non-profit organization that uses writing and film to engage young people on issues of social justice. Every year, as part of a custom-built curriculum, Scenarios sponsors a youth writing contest, selects three winning stories, and produces them into powerful short films directed by Hollywood directors. The films are given a gala premiere in New York City, and then integrated into the next Scenarios curriculum for hundreds of thousands of other young people to experience, identify with and be inspired by. Real Issues That Really Matter: Intimate Partner Violence, Homophobia in the Black Community and Transgender Identity- "Because I am young, it doesn't mean I don't have insight. Because I am an African-American woman, it doesn't mean that I'm loud, abrasive, or confrontational. Working with Scenarios bursts open every single one of those stereotypes. It's not just storytelling. It's putting a mirror of hope on our surroundings and reflecting a positive image into the world."
