‘The Color of Change: Interethnic Youth Leadership for the 21st Century’ suggests that one approach to securing a better future involves seeing youth as the progenitors of change and not simply the recipients of services. This report argues for equipping young people with the tools to change – and hold accountable – the institutional structures that can facilitate or impede their success is critical. It also suggests that the rapidly changing demographic dynamics mean that young leaders will need special skills at working across the usual boundaries of race, geography and generation. ‘The Color of Change’ looks at youth organizing through a social movement lens and offers specific recommendations for the field, including taking risks on new leadership, healing generational divides in movement organizations, seeing community colleges as sites for strategic intervention, and moving towards an integrated service delivery and civic engagement model.
Chris Gates, the Executive Director of PACE-Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement, will moderate the webinar, which will feature comments from report authors Manuel Pastor and Rhonda Ortiz.
Pastor is the Director of the University of Southern California’s Program for Environmental and Regional Equity (PERE) and a Professor of American Studies & Ethnicity at the USC. Pastor’s research has focused on issues of environmental justice, regional inclusion, and the economic and social conditions facing low-income urban communities. Ortiz is the Project Manager for USC’s Program for Environmental and Regional Equity (PERE). As Project Manager, Ortiz manages, researches and writes about immigrant integration and social movements.
