2020 has been a pivotal year for youth organizers who have been making their demands heard on the streets and at the ballot box.
In part one of our episode on Racial Justice and Electoral Politics, our hosts, Maritte and Richard, speak with Tiana Day (IG:@tiana.day), the youth activist who organized the Black Lives Matter protest at the Golden Gate Bridge earlier this summer. We learn about how she jumped into activism, the story behind the bridge shutdown, her feelings on this election, and what it’s going to take for the movement to win going forward.
Shout out to Tiana’s new non-profit Youth Advocates for Change where she continues the work of amplifying youth voices for social justice.
With just a couple weeks until the election, it’s for all of us to mobilize like crazy! Check out our 2020 Election Organizing Guide to find all the ways you can get involved in this election and help win key races and ballot measures in California and across the country.
And finally, look out for part two, where we interview an incredible community organizer running for Oakland City Council District 3, Carroll Fife!
