THE POWER OF YOUNG PEOPLE: STUDENT ADVOCACY FOR BASIC NEEDS
[THE POWER OF YOUNG PEOPLE: STUDENT ADVOCACY FOR BASIC NEEDS]
Event description: Held on Zoom, click here to register.
For the past several years, the New York YI regional office has mainly focused on issues around higher education access–lack of access to NY college students’ basic needs (i.e. food insecurity, homelessness, mental health resources). Currently, YI, along with its partner organizations, is working on legislation to create campus liaisons for students experiencing homelessness so that they can receive the necessary supports they need.
This talk will introduce some of YI NY’s policy advocacy issues and how young people between the ages 18 and 34 can get involved in the fight to ensure all college students’ basic needs are being met, and ultimately transform our society for future generations to come. Learn how to influence policy change in New York State and City today!
