Healing Justice

A framework that identifies how youth can holistically respond to and intervene on generational trauma and violence and to bring collective practices that can impact and transform the consequences of oppression on our bodies, hearts and minds.  

Community Transformation

Youth-Led Organizing

A burgeoning movement that empowers young people while simultaneously enabling them to make substantive contributions to their communities. Using organizing strategies to alter power relations and to identify, advocate for and instigate change on critical issues that are having an impact on our communities and broader society
