The Summit

2019

Hundreds of social justice warriors, young activists and community leaders will join together in Austin for the (YALL) Young Active Labor Leaders biennial Summit 2019. Will you be there to join the action?

IGNITE THE FIGHT

Strategize, Organize, Mobilize!

 

It's about shifting the rules and building power so that working communities can thrive and young workers can enjoy the fruits of their labor. Too many of our family members, friends, loved ones and neighbors are overworked, underpaid and underemployed. And far too many young workers are barely making it from day to day.
