Who's invited...

The event is open to anybody doing youth organizing, age 18-and-older. While we believe deeply in the organizing being done by high school aged youth, this will be a legal-adults-only space.

Most folks at the Summit will be young organizers, members, and leaders working to build our movement at the grassroots level, but we are also inviting movement allies funders of our work. Some rooms will be limited just to organizers or just to funders of our work. We ask all attendees to use this event to build relationships, share, and learn, but not to pitch work, either from organizations to funders or from funders to organizations. We want this space to approachable and comfortable for all participants and ask for your help to do so!

Credentialed media will be invited to observe many (but not all) of our conversations. If you are a member of the media and would like to learn more, please contact Matt at
