The Merced Displaced Youth Project is raising funds to meet the physical needs of displaced young people in Merced. With the aid of the Young Revolutionary Front your donations will be disbursed to youth who are displaced or homeless in Merced California. Covid-19 has increased the needs and obstacles for this population of young people in our city and now more than even we support our most vulnerable young people. You can donate here to this effort. Thank you for your support!
We need youth voice right now. Their experiences – and their brilliant visions for our collective future – have the potential to drive real change in this intense moment of social uncertainty. By ensuring that they get what they need to stay healthy and connected, we’ll be able to continue to help them lift up their voices, and craft and implement their solutions to the issues that are impacting all of us.
Contributions to yli go directly to our flagship programs that serve our youth leaders, of whom 90% are people of color and 71% are from low-income communities across California’s Eastern Coachella Valley, Long Beach, Central Valley, Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo.
We welcome donations of any kind from funding streams that are aligned with our values. We seek partners and allies to our movement: individuals and entities that believe in our youth and are striving to do their part to make the world a more equitable place, not just by contributing their resources to our youth-led work, but by living out these values in their own workplaces.
We do not accept funding from foundations, individuals, or other entities that acquire their wealth by producing, promoting, selling, or investing in the following:
- Sugary-sweet beverages
- Gambling or Casinos
- Check Cashing
- Private Prisons
- Fossil Fuels
- Human Rights Violations (e.g. Employing Slave Labor/Human Trafficking, Violating Indigenous Land Rights, Reinforcing Racially Discriminatory Policies)
