Where We’ve Been: Summer 2014

on 25 Jul, 2014 - Comments Off on Where We’ve Been: Summer 2014

Through civic engagement and direct action this summer focused in four states, we will confront unjust laws and advance our four-pronged agenda of participatory democracy, good jobs, quality education and decriminalization.

Leading these innovative summer campaigns are the Dream Defenders in Florida, immigrant youth with United We Dream (TX), Better Schools Better Jobs in Mississippi, and the Ohio Student Association. We see this summer as the first step toward building a sustainable youth of color-led civic engagement infrastructure to continue advancement toward our agenda long after the summer has ended.
