Amidst devastating wildfires, a global pandemic, and a rapidly changing world, young people across the planet have stepped up to lead in the movement for climate, racial, and social justice. In this workshop, high school organizers Adah Crandall and Danny Cage will offer dialogue and case studies from their involvement in youth-led projects and campaigns: the good, the bad, and the somewhere-in-between. This workshop will invite participants to join in a conversation about collaborative organizing and to imagine the possibilities for a powerful, multigenerational social movement—one that cultivates adult allyship, supports youth, and makes space for youth voices.
