Twilight Frequencies: What types of things can people do to become active in providing a real change to the issues in Central America?
Michael Peters: Such a great question! I really just encourage everyone to become active in any little way possible. It’s important to remember that you don’t have to be a doctor or in the medical field to do international outreach. I used my passion for media art along with the help of two other bright-minded individuals in their respective field to create this project. There are so many organizations out there (I probably wouldn’t have believed it myself until I did this research for Backpod) that are striving for a better quality something for lesser-privileged individuals. Unfortunately, many of these organizations lack the manpower to get their word out there. It never hurts to contact them directly and see what you can do to help. I found that many organizations have “bases” back in the states. Something as simple as working indirectly with them by spreading the word around your college campus can be crucial in the success of their projects.
