On January 29th and 30th, young people from throughout the Central Valley will be convening at the 2nd annual Central Valley Youth Organizing Conference at California State University, Sacramento.
Escuelas Si! Pintas No! Youth Organizing for Equal Justice and Education seeks to bring together young people and youth organizers from throughout the Central Valley to share experience and strategy for community change. Whether you are a youth looking to get involved or an organization already on the ground and running with youth, we invite you to join us for these two days of skills, knowledge building, and campaign planning.
The purpose of the conference is to help facilitate the building of a stronger multicultural youth movement in the Central Valley by focusing on the following goals:
Conference Goals include:
-Discover the power that young people have when working collectively
-Create a space for youth voice for interaction and strategizing
-Present new ways of looking at issues including Environment, Youth Justice, Health, and Education
-Teach and reflect on the skills and theory of organizing, such as the utilization of action research and popular education as tools for youth organizers
-Showcase resources, build networks, and link current efforts
-Link grass-roots struggle to systemic/policy change
-Assess and document the state of youth organizing in the Central Valley.
Housing is available. Registration by January 8th, 2005. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
