Youth Organizing

Young voters of color matter and make the difference, especially in close races. Since 2017, we have partnered with Power California (formerly YVote and Mobilize the Immigrant Vote) to engage young people of color to spark change through electoral organizing. Our approach includes providing on campus outreach and classroom presentations to register and pre-register 100s of Oakland youth as young as 16 to vote. During election campaigns we hire teams of high school and college-aged youth to call and text thousands of Black and Latinx voters in Oakland, requesting for their peers to pledge to vote and providing them with important information such as polling locations.
