This workshop uses an interactive digital mapping tool to help youth activate linkages with other youth activists, researchers, and organizers in their area. Youth and adults from the Twin Cities show how they have been able to power map their region by discussing some of the projects they have been working on and showing how they link up with other organizations for support and collaboration. The goal of the session is to use the tool in real time to find national links between youth seeking educational liberation.
