Two weeks ago, AYO hosted a summer political education and leadership development intensive. Students participated in workshops to learn about racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, and other oppression. We plotted our own Arab revolution in a hands on workshop, and learned about international revolutionary heroes on a Mission district mural tour. We participated in team building activities, learned what it means to be an organizer, and discussed how to overturn the pyramid of power. This weeklong session gave the students who participated some in depth leadership, but the training and involvement continues — get involved with AYO by coming to our next meeting!
