Voices of Change Community
Creating Space for Young Artists to Express How Covid-19 is Affecting Them

Who We Are

Voices of Change is an initiative of The Alliance for Education Solutions under the Sacramento Youth Alliance which includes groups of youth that advocate around issues they feel passionate about while organizing community showcases that highlight youth voice and young talent to be able to create change.

What We Do

  • Support youth to speak their truth and advocate for issues they feel passionate about.
  • Advocate for systemic change working with community partners, leaders in the communities, and people in power.
  • Provide a safe space for young people to share their passions, talents, and abilities to create change.
  • Encourage a platform for young activists to organize, share talents, and get involved with adult allies in the community.
  • Train the next generation of young leaders on civic engagement and how to understand systems change.
