JULY 2020

Leading Through A Crisis

We continue to share stories of young leaders around the world staying civically engaged during the COVID-19 pandemic. This month, we highlight youth who are organizing protests, calling for change, and leading their communities. Recognizing the importance of protest as a form of civic engagement, we echo the call from Generation Citizen for us to “listen to, and learn from, young people protesting racism as innovative civic educators.”
