From May 18 to 20, more than 400 leaders gathered at the Marguerite Casey Foundation’s National Convening in Washington, DC, to celebrate their work, their communities and their power.
OYU leaders were among the grassroots leaders, students, parents, artists, spoken-word poets, and organizers who explored what power really means, what it takes to build and grow a movement of low-income families, and how to disrupt and dismantle structural causes of poverty.
During the convening, OYU leaders and members facilitated a breakout session focused on building power among young people.
In preparation for the convening, OYU created a video on the theme of power #OwnthePower2018:
