The Youth Organizing Institute has begun! Ten new participants from across the triangle started an exciting first week. During the first session participants learned about deep listening, as well as power and privilege with Tema from Dismantling Racism Works. Participants had time to meet each other as we started to build community among new youth organizers! Later on in the day Lexi and Bryan shared a powerful workshop about movement building. They discussed different roles involved within them and the importance of every role. The day closed with Tomeka sharing a presentation on how to do critical research and the relevance of student movements all over the world. Participants are learning powerful tools to help organize their schools and organizations!
