Organizing

Organizing

  • Bringing new people into the movement.
  • Leadership development and training of young organizers.

Systems Change

Systems change

  • YPAC sees a key element of systems change as the building of the solidarity economy, an economy that works first for the people and planet.
  • We do this through the building of democratically worker owned and run cooperative green businesses. Particularly in food systems, waste systems, and energy systems.

Solidarity

Solidarity

  • Mobilizing young people to direct actions and events in solidarity with many other organizations, campaigns, and movements on a variety of issues.
  • Supporting diverse movements by organizing people and money in alignment with their work.

Education

Education

  • Popular Education Workshops from issues (feminism, climate justice, immigration, racial justice, etc.) to root causes of those issues (systems thinking, capitalism, political economy, etc)
