Join youth and students from across Vermont to gain skills for taking action together to create meaningful change in our communities. We will be having organizers discuss Vermont's political landscape and movements for change. There will be Skill Building and Education Workshops with organizers from local struggles including Rising Tide Vermont
, Vermonters for Criminal Justice Reform
, Vermont Interfaith Action
and Rights & Democracy.
Topics will include climate change direct action, community organizing, criminal justice reform, and storytelling and leadership building, this will be a chance for high school students, college students, and working youth to come together, build connections, and learn about the crises facing our world today and how to effectively fight back for a just and sustainable future!
(NOTE: We are also getting requests to do this kind of event in other parts of the state, let us know if you are interested in helping host an event near you :)
