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.
On Wednesday, June 21, Ground Building Partnership Manager, Lindsey Barrett, and panelists Evamelo Oleita, Wallyaldeen Alhomaidi, and Akua Hill discussed the findings of the southeast Michigan youth organizing scan and shared how funders can strategically resource and support youth organizing.
