Racial Justice, a fight for all
Systemic change towards Racial Justice in policy, practice and culture has always been an uphill battle that youth have persevered at. Disrupting systems requires resources, networks and community support, which all youth are not always afforded equal access to. Tangible change is difficult when stakeholders are absent or the last to hear about the need for change.
We aim to model the principle of “What you do for us, without us, is not for us.” Youth are the leaders of this space. Like any community, they know their issues, goals and solutions best, and cannot be represented by a select few. All the youth joining the YCoP will have the power to build our collective agenda.
We are a Community of Practice, building on The Inclusion Project’s decentralized and decolonized kinship model, Omo-Ebi. Adopted from the Yoruba tribe in Western Nigeria, Omo-Ebi denotes a familial context for shared experiences and meaning-making in life through the experiences of others.
