Young people of color are constantly reshaping American life—driving dynamic change in our economy, politics, and culture. Yet far too often, systems designed to help young people transition into adulthood fail to serve young people of color and their communities. Youth of color disproportionately experience poverty, are over-criminalized, and receive grossly inequitable access to educational, employment, and health opportunities. With an eye toward gender and racial equity and a belief in the power of youth voice, CLASP advocates for policy change that dismantles systems of oppression that impede young people of color from realizing their innate potential.
