Who We Are

Youth Rise Texas is a new project in partnership with Grassroots Leadership, dedicated to using mentorship and multi-generational organizing to develop the leadership of youth of color who are directly impacted by parent incarceration and deportation. Using popular education, mentorship, community organizing, and creative cultural production, Youth Rise is cultivating the cutting edge of leadership in the struggle against mass incarceration and immigrant criminalization while contributing to the movement for racial and economic justice.
