Local Youth Advisory Councils

Blue Future's Youth Advisory Council Organizing Program

Support Youth Organizers!

Most of us believe that for democracy to work for all of us, it must include us all. Young people, especially young people of color, turned out in record numbers to deliver our democracy and elect decision makers who will hear our voices.

While some politicians continue to use their voice to silence ours, young people are uniting, across race and place, to own our seat at the table and to say no decisions about us, without us.

Through our Youth Advisory Councils, we are building a national youth movement that will establish ladders to institutional power and governance. Together, we will inspire, mobilize and invest in young people to organize for a brighter tomorrow.

California


As a youth led coalition our mission is to inspire and involve young people in the decision making process and create an affirming space in order to impact policies that affect them by creating a direct communication line with their representatives. Through this platform we want to empower the youth to raise their voice, take up space, and utilize their background and experience to work towards a better community.
