CRHS Youth Organizing – Dec Update

18 Dec

Hola ARE Familia,

I think it’s important to begin sharing the work already in progress as a way of gaining awareness of what ARE members are doing locally with respect to our Laying Roots in Community Campaign.  For this reason, I am sending this brief report to our chapter…

I was tasked by the Publicity Community Relations Committee to begin attending CRHS youth group meetings.  Amazing work is happening at CRHS, which I have no doubt we will hear more about in the coming months.  I introduced myself and shared a brief overview of ARE.  The group has already conducted a survey of their immediate school community and has identified violence and police brutality as salient themes; they also voiced concerns with challenges in building a youth movement.
