The Wake County Youth Summer Leadership and Organizing Institute is kicking off this week and is hosting a community gathering at Chavis Park in Raleigh this Thursday, June 17, from 4-6pm. Come out and enjoy food, get to meet with the dynamic student leaders participating in the Youth Institute along with other community members, and help to make yard signs with messages against the attempts to resegregate the public schools in Raleigh!

The Youth Institute is a summer-long program that is bringing together high school students from across Wake County who are interested in fighting against the move to resegregate our schools and, beyond that, want to make our schools and communities more just and equitable for all students, parents and families.

For more information about the Youth Institute, the community gathering this Thursday, or the struggle to push back against the attempts to resegregate our schools and fight for education justice, please continue to visit this website or send an email to
