25 Sep Youth Power Project takes Washington D.C.
Make The Road Youth Leaders had a big week last week! We were part of a week of actions to Welcome Back Congress to remind them that they work for us, and that there is still a lot of work to do for our communities. Many organizations threw down for the days of action on immigrant justice and to re-think safety. We had four Youth Leaders from our Youth Power Project attend this week of Action.
The Youth Leaders spoke with members of Congress to talk about immigration issues, to share their stories, and to talk to them about the #Not1dollar campaign, a campaign where no one should be allowed to profit off of the pain and suffering of migrant children and their families. But that’s exactly what’s happening at the border under the Trump administration’s horrific and racist immigration policies… There’s still a lot of work left to do, but Make the Road Nevada and the Youth Power Project are up for the challenge, and won’t stop until we see justice!
If you’re interested in becoming a member of the Youth Power Project, join us for our weekly meetings at 4250 E. Bonanza Road, Suite 14, from 4pm to 6pm!
