What the Education for Liberation Project (ELP) 2 Is:
ELP 2 is an 7-week program designed to equip FIERCE’s active members with the skills they need to be effective organizers. ELP 2 is a training ground to prepare folks for the work ahead. We need brilliant youth leaders and organizers to head up our campaign work and our base building efforts. ELP 2 is one way we build and strengthen our members’ leadership.
Moving Up, Fighting Back: Creating a path to LGBTQ youth liberation was released in January 2014. The report grows out of a national survey and mapping project started, offers an analysis of the national landscape of issues impacting LGBTQ youth organizing, spotlights work being led by LGBTQ youth of color, and identifies potential political opportunities to strengthen the collective power of LGBTQ youth across the country.
From February 15-17, 2013, FIERCE held our 2nd National LGBTQ Youth of Color Organizing Summit: Connect Our Roots, in Chicago, Illinois. Over three amazing days, we shared, learned and visioned together with an amazing group of over 30 LGBTQ youth of color organizers! This document contains a description of the amazing youth-led workshops that took place at the summit.
