We are proud to invite our community to our second annual Youth Organizing Institute. “Freedom Rise: Together We Stand, Together We Stay” is a multi-media performance created by six teens who have been impacted in multiple ways by familial incarceration and deportation. We ask our community to join us and help us carry these stories as we walk in solidarity toward the day when no one will have to grow up this way.

We’ll begin the evening with a performance of our work followed by a brief talkback with the Youth Rise teens and a short program to honor the work of our members and supporters.

This event is all ages – please arrive early! Doors open at 5:45pm! You can reserve your free tickets on Eventbrite here!
