EDUCATIONAL JUSTICE LIAISON
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 9/13!
In order to win concrete change, organizers need to build with their allies. To strengthen our collaboration with activists outside YA-YA, Action Committee is offering a paid opportunity for two activists to represent the YA-YA Network in our work with other radical groups fighting the school-to-prison pipeline, and in Dignity in Schools Campaign-NY, a coalition we're a part of that fiercely battles for education reforms and dismantling the School-to-Prison Pipeline (STPP).

THE EMPOWER FELLOWSHIP
To be an activist, you need to evaluate your own -isms! The Empower Fellowship is a semester long program which encourages youth to become leaders in the movement towards social justice through political education, self awareness, and taking action in their own communities and lives!
