Grantee: Sean Lizama, Milestones Media

Project Title: "The Un-Generation: The Unheard, Unseen and Unnoticed Ones of a Voiceless Generation."
Year awarded: 2021, Round 2

Sean Lizama hosts the podcast, “The Milestones Squadcast,” where he discusses cultural transformation and community building. Lizama uses storytelling, spoken word, video, music, writing and dancing to give the audience a more engaging and personal connection to the people and themes being explored.

SAGA is excited to support Lizama’s new project, The Un-Generation documentary series. Lizama’s documentary aims to give voice to a group of five Marshallese youth, all high school dropouts at high risk from marginalized families. A shared heritage and experience has brought Lizama into contact with this group as a community mentor. His documentary will be designed to reach older generations and help them to better connect with the misunderstood stories of this younger generation.
