  • Since February 5, more than 200 undocumented im/migrants, throughout the state of NC, have been arrested and detained by ICE.

    Join the Youth Organizing Institute for our annual 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: History of Migrations & Deportations

    We will cover:

    • History of Deportations
    • Identifying ICE
    • Know Your Rights
    • ICE/Cop Watching

    In this training we hope to create space for students to talk more about the numerous forms of policing 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 from SROs/ICE/Cops in schools. We’re building #StudentPower for a statewide student movement! #WeKeepUsSafe
