Eastside Cafe – Eastside Cafe Sembrando Resistencia

The Eastside Cafe Sembrando Resistencia Youth Summer Program, located in Los Angeles, is an intentional space to empower and build youth organizing with young people ages 14-18 who identify as low-income, and are affected by, or have family who are affected by, immigration/policing policies. Organizers of the project will hold space for youth of color, undocumented, queer and/or trans youth to learn about issues affecting their communities.

This will also include community building activities, fun workshops, art and healing, and cultural/political education. Youth will take part in 9 summer sessions related to decolonization, healing community practices, growing food, organizing and political education, as well as the development of a youth space at the Eastside Cafe.
