Pushing Forward, The Fight For Skateboarders Rights

This video was put together by a group of students at the Horizons school who were a part of our "Be The Change" curriculum. During the course of the curriculum these students banded together to form a group called, "Pushing Forward".

They meet regularly not only to enjoy each others company and skateboard, but also to explore ways to promote skateboarding as a healthy lifestyle. For Pushing Forward skating is a great way to stay in shape, and stay out of trouble.

One of their goals is to chip away at the reputation skaters have in Atlanta. They believe that skateboarders should have the same rights and street cred that bicyclist have.

Check out their short PSA:
