Youth 4 Change is for local-area youth 12-22 interested in political organizing around local/state/national social justice issues that are important to them. Brattleboro area advocates and educators are holding a space and assisting youth in building a strong personal toolkit to organize for change. Using a variety of creative methods, we aim to enable youth with tools for resilience, courage, and compassion, while fostering their ability to speak up about issues that matter to them and to take action in the name of love and liberation for all people. Come to explore issues of racial, economic and gender justice through art, movement, first-hand accounts, and contemplative practices. Connect with area youth around the issues that matter to you and strengthen your toolkit for action!
Drop in homework time and art-making at 5:30. 6:00 Food and 6:30 meeting and organizing, held at the Root Social Justice Center (28 Williams St)
