BENEFITING: FUERZA UNIDA
EVENT DATE: Aug 05, 2016
Viola y Petra, Fuerza Unida's Co-Directors & Founders consider the Summer Youth Leadership Program one of our most important efforts. This year, youth ages 13 to 17, will engage in community education touching on issues of social justice and struggle and people power.
In celebrating stories of local and global lucha, Fuerza Unida hopes to embolden the precious energy of our youth and encourage them to share in our work towards a vision of social, economic and climate justice for women and their families locally and globally.
The participation and perspective of young people invigorates our commitment to our work and deepens our appreciation for it. We are infinitely grateful to individuals and communities that make our youth program possible.
Here's a glimpse of some of the areas we'll delve into during the Fuerza Unida Summer Youth Leadership Program -come along with us!
