  2. Pillar 2 - Advocacy 

    1. Black Youth Advocacy Academy 

      1. Students will learn about the importance of advocating for issues that matter to them, their families and communities. Students will learn about how legislation is moved locally, statewide and nationally. They will visit our local government offices, state capital and our nation’s capital to see firsthand how bills are passed, the process and how they can let their voice be heard on important legislation. The goal is to train new age activists and work with HBCU political science departments, and state and federal offices to pair with internships in political offices. 

  3. Pillar 3 - The Black Future’s Project (C4) Advocacy and Legislation recommendations - Coming soon! 

    1. Highschool and college aged students will be recruited and trained on important legislation and have the opportunity to speak out and oppose or support local, state and federal legislation that matters to our community. Students will also release their legislator’s grades and candidate endorsements that align with their values!
