The Manchester Chapter of the Granite State Organizing Project and our youth wing, Young Organizers United, have become known as a powerful force in the community.
Our Y.O.U. group is doing extraordinary things to bring attention to issues that point to inequities for low income students, immigrant students and students of color. Students that have been here longer need to have equal access to AP classes and college opportunities.
GSOP is also asking the city Board of School Committee to move forward on the Office of Civil Rights recommendation to actively recruit teachers of color as it reflects our student population.
Our meetings are a lively mix of relationship building, issue campaign work and skill building.
2018 concerns include fighting for the rights of low wage workers and to raise the minimum wage, addressing housing issues, including public housing concerns and working to lift the voices of students of color into local education debates. Also affordable quality childcare and immigrant rights.
