Join us for this two-part workshop series to learn how to engage in the political system, get our voices heard, and work together to show that when it comes to our future we’re not apathetic. Together, we’ll de-mystify politics, learn new skills to talk about the issues that are important to us and stand together to make sure our elected officials and candidates know what we want them to do. Stay tuned for more details!

This weekend will be a time to come together with other passionate youth activists from across the state to learn about the environmental issues in Kentucky, how we can build grassroots power to create meaningful change, and to plan on how we can support each other across the state.
The summit offers variety of workshops and trainings to make you a better equipped organizer and activist on your campus and in your community. This is a great opportunity for you to vent and brainstorm with others who are passionate about environmental and social justice issues!
If you have been meaning to get more involved with KSEC or activism in general? Well here's your chance!
