NC HEAT youth at fundraising party

On May 25 youth, community members, activists, friends, and family gathered to celebrate an amazing woman’s birthday, Bridgette Burge. Bridgette who is an advisory board member of the Youth Organizing Institute talked about her love for the program and for Youth Organizing. “I cannot think of a better way to celebrate my birthday than protesting and organizing what is happening at the general assembly.” The birthday party allowed youth to connect with community members who are in the social justice movement in NC. This powerful event is just one of the many ways which we are building an inter-generational coalition of organizers in NC. The event also helped raise money for the summer program! Can you help us reach our fundraising goal and support the work of YOI? Make a donation today!
