That is why our mission is to educate, train, and challenge Black and Latinx youth to become leaders designing healthy and racially equitable communities. We’re challenging the belief that only adults with titles (e.g. mayors, CEOs, etc.) have the power and authority to dismantle systemic racial and health inequities. In addition, we understand that historically-underinvested people cannot resdesign oppressive systems alone. Therefore, we are rallying an intergenerational movement of Redesigners for Justice.
The 2020 cohort is focusing on healthy food access in the Normandy and Wellston area of St Louis. Next year's 2021 cohort will likely tackle racial and health disparities exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Enjoy the testimonial from a 2020 cohort apprentice, Reina Stovall, above.
Thanks so much for supporting Black and Latinx youth leaders in their fight for racial equity!
