Dear friends and organizers,
Enlace, California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance, Immigrant Youth Coalition, Afrikan Black Coalition, and REC are working together to organize this year's Prison Divestment Youth Retreat. We now have a date and a location: August 6th-9th in LA.
This Retreat will be an opportunity to connect, learn, and build with organizers from around the country who are using divestment and other strategies to break the lobbying power of private prisons and dismantle the for-profit interests that profit from trauma in communities of colorand immigrant communities. It will consist of workshops, activities, and actions led by Afrikan Black Coalition, California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance, Enlace, Immigrant Youth Coalition and REC.
Filling out the form is free, and the sooner you can sign up the easier it will be to figure out logistics! Costs will be determined on a sliding scale, and we are working to get travel scholarships as well (more information on this soon).
WE HAVE NOW EXCEEDED CAPACITY ON REGISTRATIONS. ALL NEW REGISTRATIONS WILL BE DEFERRED TO OUR WAITLIST. IF YOU REGISTER WE WILL CONTACT YOU WITHIN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS TO UPDATE YOU ON ANY OPENINGS.
