15th annual Youth Activism Gathering

Save the Date--April 18-20, 2015

Friend's Camp - South China, ME

Since 2001 Maine youth have been converging annually for a three day celebration of political action, fierce youth brilliance and do-it-yourself fun. The Youth Activism Gathering (YAG) is an event organized for and by teens and young adults with support and suggestions from a few choice older activists. The gathering offers a safe space for socially conscious youth to get together for skill-sharing workshops, creative, relationship building activities, and for lots of delicious foods and dancing.  

Workshops and activities build upon activist skill sets, interpersonal relationship building, and offer creative outlets and supportive spaces for all youth regardless of race, sex, class, gender identity, gender expression, religion, survivor status, physical or mental abilities, immigration status, and all other perceived and professed identities. 

Some of this year's proposed activities and workshop focuses include:

*climate justice *feminism *direct action *racial justice & solidarity *herbalism for low-income people *bread & butter making from scratch *radio media *LGBTQ safety & solidarity *contra-dance *poetry slam *and tons more
