Empower Coalition Organization Member
Youth Empower launched the Empower Coalition in Spring 2018: a youth-led coalition of youth groups and organizations coming together with a united purpose: supporting and strengthening the youth movement in the United States to enact long lasting change in communities all across the country starting with the midterm elections.
From the U.S. Civil Rights Movement, to the Arab Spring, to the current students uprising demanding an end to gun violence, there has been no successful social movement without young people leading. Organic, decentralized social movements such as Occupy, #BlackLivesMatter, Movement for Black Lives, People’s Climate March, Women’s March, and March for Our Lives, have been the driving force behind social change across the country for a decade. The Empower Coalition seeks to organize to drive impact in the lives and communities of youth and youth allies in their communities.
Together, we enacted powerful change at the midterm elections. Youth voted in record numbers and showed that they are taking the reigns on their future. Post-elections, this coalition focuses on empowering the youth movement as a whole and providing expertise and guidance to youth organizers via support from resourced and staffed social justice organizations. We work to organize at the levels of organization so that we can accelerate our impact and capture the untapped potential of a coalition that is greater than the sum of its parts.
