The liberation of Black Men, Black Women, and Black Trans folks is liberation for all.
Eliska Champagne-Veselka
59:46
Itโ€™s also important to have a multi-faceted approach to impact change, protests are a critical aspect - but the depth of systemic racism needs to be hit on all fronts.
Kabir Small
01:00:11
Spend your money with ppl who support your values.
Kabir Small
01:00:22
ppl/companies
Tiffany Murphy
01:00:30
Yes Kabir!! I 100% agree
Marcia MaxsonSchwartz
01:01:06
Agreed. I've been hosting roundtable discussions recently to help people understand the movement better. Some are so intimidated by the protests they become resistant to hearing the message at times
David Abromowitz
01:01:40
We white folks have our own work to do, which will often be uncomfortable.
Michael Quigley
01:02:19
I think my fellow white people. We need to sit in our challenges that make us uncomfortable.
Kabir Small
01:02:37
What I love about the protests is there are many shades of color protesting police brutality.
Lisa Reddy
01:02:39
Yes, and educate ourselves!
Kabir Small
01:03:31
People are working together to obliterate systemic racism. We need to keep our foot on the gas!
Eliska Champagne-Veselka

Hi everyone, the following are the focus questions for the breakout! 1) What does support look like for you in your program or community? 2) What type of action feels meaningful in the circles you're part of? 3) What do you need from YouthBuild USA to support this action?
Marcus Davis
01:12:12
How do we join the group.
Marcus Davis
01:43:30
Great to see everyone!
Shan Heben
01:44:46

Breakout Room 9
Amber Palmeri
01:50:26
Thanks, Jeremy. :)
Charles Modiano
01:52:11
Yes, great opportunity to change policing policy that is being discussed in every locality. We can use Youth Policy Committee to help guide this. What would we like to see. Whether ending Qualified Immunity or "Defunding the Police" that reallocates resources to other more effective community services. This fits well into our Leadership Component and there are past examples of young people affecting change
Laycon Brown
01:53:05
Qualified Immunity! Thats major Charles
Laycon Brown
01:53:57
And teaching our youth their rights and how to โ€œClearly Establishโ€ them when they encounter a police officer.
Corry Watson
01:54:57
Before we finish the call, can we address that "influencing legislation" is an AmeriCorps prohibited activity and how we can work around that? Talking to our young people about the impact that influencing legislation is majorly important right now.
Corry Watson
01:55:28
*impact that influencing legislation has, sorry about that
Michael Quigley
01:55:37
I think the answer is to make sure the members don't have any AMeriCorps gear on. YOu should be safe after that.
Tim Andrews
01:55:48
^
Corry Watson
01:56:02
Yeah, we need some non-uniform days right now for sure!
Corry Watson
01:58:43
Thank you Elizabeth!
Kristina Smith
01:58:57
Yes Elizabeth!!! YES WE CAN
Phoebe Reeves
01:59:58
Thank you, Elizabeth!
Frederica White

Eliska Champagne-Veselka
02:01:34
Also, to develop other curriculum based on the BP model - that teaches academic skills through social justice lens, with suggested activities that demand the incorporation of local realities (the way that Blueprint For Democracy is developed)
Sara Silva
02:02:04
We were group 9 and all but one of us are white. We talked about how it is long overdue for white people to be uncomfortable with the history of our country.
Roberto Rodriguez Savedra
02:02:31
The Blueprint for Democracy Curriculum is great but we need to update it with information for the last few years. I can support this as I have used this over the years as part of the Youthbuild Movement.
J-D Garcia
02:03:41
Neil Qusba and Eliska also mentioned that there are international social justice strategies that we should consult and contextualize to our communities.
Eliska Champagne-Veselka
02:04:40
Definitely -love that idea of connecting youth!
Jeremy Fulbright
02:05:03
9 was awesome
Charles Modiano
02:06:01
Eliska also mentioned the specific role of white people and making sure white staff in predominantly white YB's are properly informing white students. Also using privilege to impact local power to impact policies
Dawn Anderson
02:08:57
I like that Charles
Jeaneen West
