photoThe Ya-Ya Network is a citywide anti-racist, anti-sexist organization and allies with the LGBTQ community. Ya-Ya is staffed by young activists ages 15-19. We work with other youth, adult allies, youth programs & activist organizations.We are currently one of the few groups made up primarily of youth of color who are active in the counter-military recruitment movement.  We lead workshops and trainings to make sure our peers get accurate information, not just a recruiter’s sales pitch. We help other youth groups and schools set up their own counter recruitment campaigns. We do research and produce written material and fliers that you can download here.
