Help make DC Desi Summer 2011 happen

(U.S.-centric)

Inspired by Youth Solidarity Summer in New York, RadDesi Summer in Texas, Organizing Youth in California, South Asian Summer Solidarity for Youth in Boston, and Desh Pardesh in Toronto, DC Desi Summer is a weekend-long leadership and empowerment program for youth. Spearheaded by the volunteer DCDS Collective, DC Desi Summer provides a radical and inclusive space for youth of South Asian heritage to examine key social justice issues and take action. The goal of the forum is to engage participants in critical reflection, coalition building, and activism. We believe that a united, educated, and inspired collective of young activists is crucial to creating social change both locally and globally.

The DC Desi Summer collective is currently conducting an online fundraising campaign on IndieGoGo. In order to cover all meals, space rental fees, and provide travel scholarships for the youth, we're hoping to raise about $2,200, all to go toward the cost of the event. We'd appreciate it if you would pass on the IndieGoGo link or website information to anyone else you think might want to support this initiative or to any youth who'd be interested in applying.

Please take a look and consider supporting this community organizing initiative:
