From here to the Middle East, young people are rising up, taking action, and transforming the world. Join us on April 30th for a Youth Assembly to discuss the issues that affect our lives, come up with demands and visions for a better world, and build a movement to bring us closer to our goals.

Youth Assembly
When: Saturday, April 30th, 12-3pm
Where: Arlene Francis Theater. 99 W. Sixth St., Santa Rosa

There will be free food, free information, free admission, and hella fun!

Get Angry: Over the last three years, 50 % of the funds for K-12 schools in California have been cut (that’s $3,000 per student!). At the same time, community colleges (like SRJC) have lost $1.2 billion, while fees have gone from less than $11 per unit, to $36 per unit by next fall. In the last ten years, state schools (like Sonoma State) have seen a 290 percent increase in student fees.

Get Organized: It’s time for us to get organized, stand up and fight back for the control of our education! Everyone is impacted by these budget cuts, and only together do we have the power and possibility to stop these attacks against young people. Join us on April 30thand spread the word!

Get Involved! The Youth Assembly is planned BY youth, FOR youth, so we need your help.

In Solidarity,
Strike! Hella Youth Organizing for Power

We are a feminist, anti-racist, anti-capitalist youth organization. Through strategic direct action and critical reflection, we are building broad youth-led movements to take back control of the institutions that dominate our life. At the same time, we seek to create new local spaces and cultures that actually support youth community and liberation. We'd love to work with anyone who supports these goals. (Hella) Solidarity.
