DONATE FUNDS TO OUR LOCAL SERVE YOUR CITY WARD 6 MUTUAL AID
Our New Deal for Youth Changemakers and Partners are hosting a local donation drive at our Block Party to benefit our community partners at Serve Your City Ward 6 Mutual Aid. Serve Your City has served as the infrastructure hub for Ward 6 Mutual Aid here in Washington, DC. This is a partnership of more than three dozen organizations coming together in mostly Black- and Brown-led neighborhoods to share resources and save lives after the COVID-19 pandemic struck the District. We believe that national change starts locally. Join us in supporting this local effort.
SIGN ON TO OUR ND4Y DEMANDS
For more than two years, A New Deal for Youth Changemakers from communities across the country have been working to develop policy ideas and solutions on the issues that most impact their lives. We’ve developed thirty-six demands across our six core areas: economic justice and opportunity, healing and wellbeing, justice and safe communities, democracy and civic engagement, environmental justice, and immigration justice.
