It’s a Friday afternoon at the MetWest High School gymnasium. Over a hundred students and faculty are gathered for the school’s weekly town hall meeting.

Senior Jose Gomez is at the front of the gym. He’s proposing his thesis project: “So the issue I’m focusing on is many Latino families have a lack of communication between each other. I’m trying to get them strengthened,” says Gomez.
