Attend the WV Freedom School!


West Virginia Citizen Action Group is co-sponsoring the American Friends Service Committee’s (AFSC) WV Freedom School, a three-day intensive workshop where young people ages 14-22 will learn about the history of race and racism in our country. Those attending will also learn how to do a power analysis of their community to understand how and why racism and racial inequality persist today. Most importantly, attendees will leave knowing how to organize in their school or community to help build and lead the movement in West Virginia.

WV Freedom School
Fri., Aug. 28 – Sun., Aug. 30; 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
East End Family Resource Center

As part of our co-sponsorship, we are asking you to help us find three young people ages 14-22 to represent WV CAG in the inaugural class of the WV Freedom School. Are you 14-22 years old or do you know someone who would be a good candidate? If so, please fill out AFSC’s online application while spaces are available.
