Project Abstract

The following presentation will describe an internship experience known as the “Class Advocacy Project”. The Class Advocacy Project is known as a project which is committed to understanding the experience of black youth activists as well as the experience of youth of color activists in the United States. The Class Advocacy Project is dedicated to allyship with youth of color activists and is committed to learning how to remain an ally to youth of color activists. The Class Advocacy Project has spent many hours researching the experience of people of color, particularly youth, and how systemic factors contribute to the consistent oppression of people of color. The Class Advocacy Project has worked toward providing social media posts which advocate for the mental health of people of color, specifically youth activists of color. Additionally, The Class Advocacy Project has provided services for the youth of ROYAL (Revolutionary Oak Park Youth Action League) such as tutoring and mentorship, allyship, office hours for discussion, and more.
