Overview

At Vocal Justice, our mission is to position youth proximate to injustice as leaders for liberation. That’s why we built a culturally affirming curriculum that helps high schoolers, particularly Black and Brown youth, recognize the power of their authentic voices and use them to advocate for liberation — wherever they choose to lead in life.

We train and compensate educators across the U.S. to facilitate our program at their schools, either as part of an existing class or as an afterschool club.

To date, we’ve reached over 30 educators and 700 young people across 15+ states. Students, teachers, and school leaders alike have shared their appreciation for our program, which provides a safe space for youth to explore their intersecting identities, build community with peers, and learn about and advocate for liberation.

Our curriculum is rooted in culturally sustaining pedagogy and aligns with Common Core, Social and Emotional Learning competencies, and Social Justice Standards.
