Spotlight: The Funders’ Collaborative on Youth Organizing
October 25 2022
Youth organizing cleared the path for the Inflation Reduction Act. Over the past few years young climate activists took to the streets in climate strikes, worked to elect progressive climate champions, and advocated relentlessly for the Green New Deal, empowering and compelling leadership to pass climate legislation. While the gap between the change we need and the IRA reveals there is much more to do, the path forward for climate action remains lit by the energy of youth organizing.
128 Collective recognizes and supports the unique power of youth to drive the change we need for a just transition to a climate safer world. So it was a welcome opportunity to share our enthusiasm for youth when the Funders’ Collaborative on Youth Organizing released their Youth Power Pledge to the philanthropic community.
