Insights from Detroit Youth & Their Champions
Our “Let’s Talk” series holds informative and healing conversations about issues that impact Detroit youth and the adults who serve them.
Young Detroiters are counted among the leaders of social movements, from civil rights to the labor movement to climate justice and beyond. To learn more about youth organizing from leaders in the field, we engaged the Funders’ Collaborative on Youth Organzining (FCYO) to lead a scan of southeast Michigan youth organizing groups and funders.
Join this virtual Let’s Talk on Wednesday, June 21 at 4:00pm EST with Ground Building Partnership Manager, Lindsey Barrett, and panelists Evamelo Oleita, Wallyaldeen Alhomaidi, and Akua Hill to hear from youth organizers, discuss the findings of the southeast Michigan youth organizing scan as it is launched, and explore how funders can strategically resource and support youth organizing. The full report will be available to the public directly following the Let’s Talk discussion.
