Drinking Water Video: New from The Bigger Picture


The Bigger Picture works with youth to highlight how Type 2 Diabetes impacts communities, using poetry and music as tools to inspire young people to take action. Through learning, conversation, engagement and advocacy, young people fight Type 2 Diabetes in their communities

A recent campaign, created with support from Metta Fund and Mount Zion Health Fund, provides a workshop to youth poets in the Bay Area. The workshop helps them address how inequitable access to fresh water, combined with sugary drink consumption, influences Type 2 diabetes rates among youth.

Ten beautifully powerful poems were created, and one was transformed into The Bigger Picture’s most recent film, “Bottled Up,” which you can watch above.
