Joyous Action: Youth Protest Playground

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Artists and organizers will share how we can support community struggles with joy, laughter, and love at the center. Through games, play, and examples of youth-led movements, youth will pick what issues to uplift and explore how to celebrate the work of making change. We will identify a demand we have of attendees and plan an action to achieve our demand. We will make a banner, signs, chants, and a performance to include in the action at the end of this two-part session.
