USSF Youth Call

Greetings Good People,
    I hope that all is well with everyone. I want to plug folks in to the work being done around the United States Social Forum. The United States Social Forum (USSF) will be taking place in Detroit, June 22-26, 2010. This is a really crucial event and space to help bring communities together intergenerationally around social and economic change.
    The energy, presence, and involvement is needed from us all to help make the USSF possible. One important piece of the USSF is the involvement of young people.  I am a part of the USSF Youth Working Group, this group is youth-led and serves to bring youth perspective and action to the forefront of the USSF. As we all know young people have always been on the front lines of critical social and economic movements and change. For those of you who are between the ages of 13-24, or would like to support a young person in that age group to participate, there is going to be a conference call this Monday, February 22 at 9 p.m EST. It would be amazing to have as many people as possible on that call. Below you will find the agenda and information needed to RSVP.
   Please pass this information on to as many people as you know.  For those who would like to follow up and get more information you can check out Also, please feel free to email me with any questions that you have.



Peace yall.
I hope everyone is doing well...and that you are all finding balance in your lives....and that yall are finding time to laugh through the daily struggles we all live in. I am incredibly excited to announce that we have chosen our new hire for the Youth Outreach Worker, her name is Jardyn Lake and she will be making her introduction on the call. We will also be talking about fundraising and getting some last thoughts on the Youth Outreach packet. The Agenda is at the bottom, please look and get together your thoughts for the call.
