This institute is led by queer and trans youth of color organizers. This institute is for queer and trans youth of color and adult allies working with queer and trans youth of color while organizing for racial and economic justice. This is a space for youth organizers to share strategies and challenges in their work and build resiliency with other young leaders while adult allies/supporters listen to the needs of the youth in the movement.
This institute will take place in two parts:
Part 1: WE BE FIERCE! Youth and adult allies will have the opportunity to meet in separate spaces to hold interactive discussion on needs, challenges, and best practices for centering the leadership of youth in organizing for racial and economic justice.
Part 2: Queer & Tran Youth of Color Rise Up! We will delve deep into skill-building for powerful and impactful youth organizing that is by and for queer and trans youth of color. FIERCE member will share our new organizing model, Base Building ,and Faciliation skills through youth led workshops and fun activities.
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU!!!!
