Building Political Power in Communities of Color

Attention readers in Minneapolis! There's a workshop happening next month about organizing for young people in communities of color:

The Center for Civic Participation and the League of Rural Voters present a one-day workshop for young people/students of color:

Building Political Power in Communities of Color Workshop Description:

In the 2004 elections, people of color turned out to vote in record numbers--yet, for a number of reasons, our communities are still grossly underrepresented in the political processes of this country. While we may not have maximized our participation in the electoral arena, we have long histories of organizing for economic, social justice, and civil rights throughout history. These stories are routinely left out of mainstream educational institutions and progressive political conversations! As a result Young people are further disenfranchised because they are not made aware of the powerful organizing histories of their communities as well as their historical leadership roles in creating change.
