A journal for young students who are passionate about art and advocacy

Self care is an act of social justice.

The Road to Find is a creative journal for students founded by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Sonia Banker, Arts Justice Fellow. Its mission is to inspire and empower youth to express their issues on social justice through any types of artistic form, including visual, performing, and creative art.


The Road to Find Journal was founded by Sonia Banker in June of 2020 with the support of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in Southern California. At its center, the journal was founded on the basis that art and creativity are among the most powerful forms of self-expression. The Road to Find aims to foster a creative space for students across the country to explore various art forms while also reflecting on social justice issues around them. This journal features a range of different art forms, including creative writing, visual, and performing art. We accept submissions from students ages 12-18 on our digital platform at in alignment with the designated theme for each edition. We are looking for any contributions and ideas that follow the submission guidelines, and we look forward to reading and receiving your work.
