Spring 2021 Final Showcase

Act for Change Teen Anti-racism Program

The next Act for Change (AfC) cohort will bring together teens from across Ulster County to engage in anti-racist dialogue and work across identity groups. The program will run from the week of Feb 6th- April 4th with about 2 hours of work/meetings each week. Our first meeting will be in-person on Tuesday Feb 7th at 6:00pm. Teens will have the opportunity to attend/give a workshop at SUNY New Paltz on March 3rd, and we will also plan a culminating event at the Ulster County government offices. All other meetings will be virtual. Attendance is a critical part of our program. 

AfC has been co-developed by teens, Cooperative Extension staff, and Cornell faculty and undergraduate students.
