They have collaborated with two Northwest Pasadena youth groups -- La Pintoresca Teen Education Center and Pasadena YouthBuild-- to create a video poem from a teen perspective of living in Pasadena and to conduct and film interviews with the Pasadena Police department’s top brass and city council members.
