No One Is Disposable Earth Day Action

YVA is hosting a Bay Area Action in San Francisco as part of Earth Day activism on April 21st, 2023

Youth across the Bay Area are demanding that Governor Newsom be held accountable for not protecting our communities. We will empower young people to become involved in activism that allows them to tell their stories and make change, and keep them involved in the movement after this action. 

Low income communities of color  have  had to deal with fires, floods, and bad air quality in California.  We know that the root cause of the multiple crises we face is  the same system responsible for the social injustices frontline communities experience daily. We are coming together to show that the power of youth of color is alive and growing and that this movement is for us and by us. We are a continuation of our ancestor’s work and resistance to systemic oppression that will not end until no one is disposable!

March Route: 

We will gather at Embarcadero Plaza then go on a 1.9 mile march past the SF Immigration Court office and the California State Building. Map here.

Schedule: 

10:00am – Gather, practice chants, learn song/ movement, speakers, Hip Hop performances
11:00am – March
1:00pm – End
