Youth Club Principles:
1 GRASSROOTS ORGANIZING, LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT, AND RELATIONSHIPS
We believe that global systems of power that uphold injustice can be changed by grassroots movements. We build grassroots power through relationships that move people to action.
2 THE CAPACITY FOR PEOPLE TO CHANGE
Foundational to our work for justice and peace is believing people, organizations, and communities are dynamic. We create space for people to move and transform. We encourage continual learning, skill-development and political education for people to evolve in their thinking and deepen their investment in action to realize justice for all people.
3 SOLIDARITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY
As part of the global movement for equality, peace, and inclusiveness; we work in close partnership with a broad spectrum of allies, partners, faith-based, peace, and social justice organizations in the US, India and beyond. We seek to be accountable to those directly affected by discriminatory and violent acts in our community, while working to effectively build and accountably deploy our power as Indo-American Youth.
4 RESPECT FOR THE HUMANITY OF ALL PEOPLE
We believe parity of power will create opportunities for peace between individuals and globally. Our vision of peace, justice and equality for all people guides our work.
5 FLEXIBILITY AND TENACITY FOR THE LONG HAUL
As an organization and as individual activists we understand that this is long-term work and the change we seek likely won’t happen quickly or through just one strategy. We enable broad participation, employ multiple approaches, adapt based on what we are learning, and honor the diverse contributions of activists and leaders.
