Luqman and Hiqman - Winners of the ICL Alumni Association Youth for Change Award

The ICL Alumni Association Youth for Change Award is for youth (under the age of 19) who organized and brought people together to achieve change in the face of uncertainty.

Luqman and Hiqman organized students attending George Harvey Collegiate Institute to challenge a ban on wearing du-rags in school. ICL and For Youth Initiative worked with these students to develop the skills they needed to organize their classmates to work towards a common goal. Thanks to their campaign, the principal changed the dress code to allow du-rags in school, recognizing it as a culturally relevant dress for Black youth.

Luqman and Hiqman received their awards at the Institute for Change Leaders third-year anniversary celebrations on November 18, 2019.
