The Children’s Workshop School is celebrating 28 years of serving the diverse families of New York City. We created this video to showcase our special community.

CWS was founded on the ideals of Martin Luther King, Jr. These revolutionary ideals of freedom, equality, mutuality, respect, racial justice, grassroots organizing, and advocacy are echoed in our school hallways everyday and are the fundamental basis for all we do. In 2013, our fifth graders produced this Raise Your Voice video.
