Insights and Reflections from Bay Area Solidarity Summer, United Roots, and Anakbayan
Are you educating and organizing against rising inequality, profound social injustice, and state violence, but finding youths going elsewhere and your membership ageing?
Join Bay Area youth organizers Simmy Makhijani, Anirvan Chatterjee, and Anakbayan activists to learn the inside stories of Bay Area Solidarity Summer (a political action camp for young progressive South Asians, www.solidaritysummer.org), United Roots (Oakland's green youth arts and media center, unitedrootsoakland.org), and Anakbayan Silicon Valley (which struggles for the rights of Filipinos in the U.S. and social change in the Philippines, anakbayansv.com).
They’ll cover the practical (outreach, resources, budget, logistics, and group structure), the political (pedagogy, curriculum, politics of youth organizing), and lessons learned from the histories of these two very different community organizations.
