ABOUT
ABOUT THE PROJECT
2020 & 2021 have been a year of incredible hardship and upheaval.
The #WeWereHere Project is an opportunity to show the world how you’ve dealt with big issues like health concerns and quarantine, missing friends and milestone celebrations, protest and social justice, and a society examining its attitudes about racism, wealth, and privilege. It's also a way to demonstrate how you've connected to and helped others in your community and beyond to make a positive impact.
The #WeWereHere Project was created by Young Adult Services Forum of the Illinois Library Association This website is built & maintained by teen web developer Rayaan Siddiqi.
