INTO ACTION is a four-day celebration that previously took place on August 6 and 7; and has remaining dates on August 12 and 18. In honor of International Youth Day, the initiative will celebrate young people on the frontlines of protests advocating for social justice by highlighting young leaders’ groundbreaking work and uplifting their voices. From panels to analyzing Tik Tok as a platform that brings awareness, this day will be the time for elders to listen to the youth.
INTO ACTION’s aim is to encourage Black people to unite, reclaim their power, assert their rights, and continue to speak out about social justice for a better tomorrow. On August 6 and 7, it celebrated the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act. Speakers that day discussed Black political power, brought awareness to voter suppression and voting rights, and celebrated those still fighting for change today.
