About Us

NYC Summer is creating six weeks of liberation schools for youth activists from NYC and around the country affiliated with community organizations working for social and economic justice. The goal is to strengthen the leadership of young peoples within their organizations and respective communities. We also hope to encourage links between all of the NYC youth to strengthen citywide struggles for justice. The participation of local and visiting youth will contribute to local and global movement building in this critical moment where our freedoms, civil liberties, immigrant communities, and access to basic resources are under attack.

New York Summer is a project to support and unite our communities' struggles. Using popular education to train community organizers, or Education for Liberation program places skilled young people with the city's community-based organizations.

These organizers come together once a week to learn and share, becoming a team that can build a sustained response to local, state, and federal policies that have decimated our city, specifically the poor and working class residents.

NYC Summer consists of the Education in Liberation project, which is six weeks of Democracy School for youth activists from NYC and around the country affiliated with community organizations working for social and economic justice.
