THE STORY:

Black people in Detroit are hurting. From being denied access to water, to the state control of our schools, Black people in Detroit are fighting for a basic self-determination. The Black Youth Project 100 Detroit Chapter was started to make heard the voice of the people; to organize around the issues that affect Black people directly; and advocate for brighter Black futures in Detroit. The Black Youth Project 100 (BYP100) is an activist member-based organization of Black 18-35 year olds, dedicated to creating justice and opportunity for all Black people. Its membership is comprised of young Black activists from labor, electoral politics, media, reproductive rights, environmental justice, prison abolition and other sectors of political struggle. Since July 2013, BYP100 has organized local chapters in the San Francisco/ Bay Area, Chicago, New York City, Washington, DC, New Orleans, Detroit, and Durham. BYP 100 is hosting their annual conference from March 12th-15th in Raleigh, North Carolina, and we are actively fundraising for a total of $5,000 that will ensure every member is able to attend. This amount includes registration, travel, and lodging costs for all members of BYP 100 Detroit. The conference is designed for us to participate in seminars, dialogues, and workshops that provide spaces for us to engage in dialogue to help identify what we want our communities to look like, and to share skills and best practices to realize those visions. Our fundraising efforts are actively underway, and we are asking for your help! Supporting BYP100 Detroit is supporting a new generation of Black organizers dedicated to disrupting the status quo and ensuring our voices and demands are heard and met!
