Minnesota

Jewish Community Action and Voices for Racial Justice will build a diverse, broad-based youth led network to identify issues and take action for social change. The network will consist of high school youth across race, class and religion and will work to build a leadership voice for youth communities of color in particular. In the first year, the partners will:  1) engage with, train and convene diverse youth of color organizations around the state to explore what organizing together might look like, the issues and directions of interest, as well as 2) explore interest in a legislative proposal for voter pre-registration for 16 and 17 year olds at the State Capital.
