Join the Youth Organizing Institute for our spring training! This is an opportunity for high school students to connect and build with each other, while developing shared political analysis and organizing skills.
This training’s theme is: What is Violence? What is Safety?
With the recent national conversations highlighting the impact of mass shootings in our schools and communities, we have seen thousands of high school students take action to address violence in our schools. We have also seen a lot of students raise concerns around other forms of violence in schools: unjust disciplinary policies (like out of school suspensions), sexist dress code policies, harassment or intimidation from police on campus and/or school resource officers, lack of support for trans and gender non-conforming students, and more.
In this training we hope to create space for students to talk more about the numerous forms of violence they face in their schools. We also hope to talk about what safety actually means for our communities, especially youth of color, LGBTQ youth, undocumented youth, disabled youth, and others who often feel unsafe in schools.
Come join us for vibrant discussion and popular education styled activities to break down violence and create the kind of safety we know we need!
