Panel: Youth of Color Leading Movements for Safety and Justice
On July 9, 2018 FCYO held a special funder strategy session focused on young people of color leading movements for safety and justice .
Attendees got to:
- Hear lessons learned from young people of color who have been on the forefront of this movement, connecting the symptoms of violence to root causes of injustice. Speakers will include current Youth for Safety and Justice Fund grantees, and young people who planned actions around the March for Our Lives and the National Student Walkouts.
- Learn from youth organizing leaders about what it will take to move beyond effective actions, beyond voter engagement, to a full realization of community power.
- Engage with FCYO staff and youth organizing funders in discussions and activities with the goal of amplifying and and sustaining powerful youth-led change for communities of color.
