Growing Stronger Together: Youth and Student Caucus
If you identify as a youth or student, please join us for this energizing session focused on building the visionary leadership, imagination, and skills of young people. The Youth Caucus is a closed space for you to come together with other young people at CommonBound 2016 and learn from each other about the work you are doing around the country. Caucus participants can organize around issues of interest to the group, hear about the New Economy Coalition’s youth organizing and grantee network, and participate in dialogue to further the new economy. We will map our work, get to know each other, and lift up our visions for a more just future.

White People Disrupting Racism and White Supremacy

This is a working space for people to gather and talk about how white people can be active agents in disrupting racism and white supremacy in our minds, our relationships, our communities, and our movements. Join us in a working session to reflect on your experience of race, privilege, and white supremacist culture. This conversation will use tools and values from the organization Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ). *This is a working space, not a caucus, and is open to anyone of any identity.
