HKonJ Youth Assembly

For the past several years, YOI has co-convened a pre-HKonJ youth gathering and organized the youth contingent at the Historic Thousands on Jones St. demonstration and rally.

Last year, for the first time we hosted NC’s #BlackLivesMatter Youth Assembly where over 300 students and youth from across the state convened to uplift shared issues, build solidarity, and fight back.

The pre- and post-HKonJ events and programming are an opportunity for young folks to connect, build a better understanding of each other’s work, and established a share youth agenda for the state of North Carolina.
