"When [youth] are treated with respect, given choice and expected to have opinions that matter, they have opinions and make choices." - Aurora Levins-Morales. Young folks are the truth. They are powerful and capable and resilient who need just a little bit of space and some caring adults who believe in these things too. Yecelica’s background is in community and youth organizing and anti-racism work. They graduated from the University of Washington, studying Anthropology and Women Studies. A fun fact about them is that they really love tattoos and has about 13 of them - but hate needles.
