BENEFITING: Fasting 5k Inc
The California team will fundraise for the Muslim, Black, Chicano and Asian Pacific Youth Leadership Projects. These projects work closely together to bring students from all over California to the State Capitol to teach them leadership, policy, and hold mock legislature sessions on the Senate and Assembly floor. These programs' graduates have moved on to become community activists and government officials, many of whom have created their own non-profit organizations and taken on groundbreaking leadership roles. Their close collaboration embodies the intersectional efforts needed in today's political climate.
