NYCLU - Youth Activism

Ongoing

 

The current political climate has motivated more young people to take action. Many youth are recognizing the power that young advocates have, as demonstrated by the youth movement that sprung out of the tragic Parkland shooting, as well as many other youth-led efforts across the country.

The NYCLU has prioritized youth activism for more than 20 years. We work with youth organizers across New York State to ensure that young people know their rights, know how to access those rights and learn how to effectively organize around civil rights and civil liberties in their schools and communities. To meet the needs of New York youth and to build on our past success, the NYCLU has expanded our work in youth activism through a variety of ways by adding new programs, campaigns, and initiatives.
