Through "The Halls"

Telling stories of teenagers in Boston: and their struggles with relationships, trauma, masculinity, LGBTQ+ acceptance, and their own identity.

We hope this web-series inspires viewers to critically think and challenge themselves on messages we are fed by the media about how young people are supposed to act in relationships. This helps them to free themselves and engage in positive alternatives.

Two Seasons of "The Halls"

Critical Thinking and Positive Impact

In partnership with Beyond Measure Productions and Casa Myrna, we created a web-series, discussion guide, and pre/post-evaluations to provide a coordinated community response that supports child, youth, and young adult survivors. The Boston Public Health Commission seeks not only to work to prevent gender-based violence, but to also promote healthy relationships amongst adolescent populations.
