NoCap 2023 Kick-Off
Students have had the opportunity to build coalitions with other young folks across the south learning from each other, our team, and our training facilitators. Some training sessions have included the history and impact of the restriction of reproductive health care, the legacy of HBCU student organizing in the south, and how to canvas in your community. Upcoming trainings will cover education on genocide in Palestine, narrative building in organizing, and identifying resources in the community. The fellowship also incorporates a journaling portion that allows students to connect and identify with what drives them to do this work, how to heal and transform as an organizer, and what liberation can look like in their lifetime.
Students are working to complete projects that highlight issues that directly impact them. Some issues that students have chosen to tackle include mental health for students, genocide in Palestine, voting access in the south, and dismantling the school-to-prison pipeline. As the fellowship continues we are excited to support the growth of youth organizing and can’t wait to see how they continue to build and locate power.
