Youth Council

Team's vision 

We believe our youth have the answers to society’s most challenging dilemmas and they must be the ones who dream and build the future they deserve. 

Describe the issue 

Right now, youth, especially Black and Brown youth, are often viewed as potential problems instead of the stars they could become. As a result, a punitive system has developed that suppresses ad confines rather than building and growing our young folks’ hopes and dreams.  

Describe the current campaign (i.e. Youth Opportunity Passes) and project/s (i.e. Block Party) 

Awaiting end of planning process...
