Protest

Millennials Can No Longer Be Silent About Our Broken System. They Are Moving, Demonstrating and Revitalizing Movements for Social Change

Yong Jung Cho, Waleed Shahid, Devontae Torriente, Sara Blaz
Fifty years ago, young people inspired and moved our whole country away from Jim Crow, war and McCarthyism in the 60s. Today a new generation of young activists are inspiring and moving our country. Today's youth are active for justice, jobs, immigrant rights, against police murder and racism, peace, and are revitalizing the labor movement.

If the state says you go to bed by 10 o'clock, then you should make sure that by 11, the streets of our cities are filled with human protest and bodies! The fact that some might have a restless night with the noise downstairs or find it inconvenient because people blocked traffic, well that's the point - to snap you out of your indifference!
