Our mission is to create a Native youth leadership group focused on power and justice through youth organizing and civic participation. It’s your opportunity to create a sustainable community and civic / systemic change.
From Indigenous Peoples Day to the removal of the Columbus statue in Grand Park to the emergent Indigenous Education Now justice campaign, youth have shown their leadership through serving as speakers during public hearings and events; learning hands on organizing tactics such as conducting power analyses, understanding targets, conducting letter and phone banking campaigns to amplify Indigenous community voice; and building multiracial and multi-issue partnerships and coalitions.
In 2019, youth engaged with the California Native Vote Project and created their own youth group — Native Youth for Justice – LA. Their mission is to create a Native youth leadership group focused on power and justice through youth organizing and civic participation. All Native youth from throughout Southern California are invited to attend monthly meetings.
If you’re Native American between the ages of 12-25 we welcome you to join us in our monthly meetings that happen on every second Wednesday.
