The Youth Organizing Summit 2018 was for young leaders to get our ish together for the fight. 632 young leaders from 40 states came together to debrief 2016, identify needs and opportunities to fight back, and grow the skills and connections we need to build political power of our very own.
It was a space for all young people who believe in justice – across race, class, gender, and all identities – and who are ready to fight and win. After an amazing first summit, we’re working to follow up and build for the future.
