Support CUP with Project Resist!

Support CUP with Project Resist!

Thank you so much to Project Resist for partnering with us for the month of September! Together, we raised $250 to sustain our hands-on investigative Youth Education programs to empower our next generation of civic leaders.

Together, we'll investigate: what does civic engagement look like for youth today? How can students have an impact in the age of Trump?

Over the next year, our students will tackle issues from immigrant rights to climate change to racial justice to LGBT rights! These issues hit close to home for many of our students, many of whom are from low-income communities of color, and many of whom are recent immigrants. All proceeds from Project Resist will go directly towards five Urban Investigations over the next year, allowing 75 students to explore these complex topics, understand their impacts, and identify where they can have a voice in decision-making in their communities. 

Our first project in Red Hook is already underway and students are hard at work investigating school segregation in New York City. Pictured above are our Red Hook youth interviewing Council Member Carlos Menchaca.

Project Resist is an initiative that raises money for a different charity each month by selling enamel pins. Started by our friends at Second Marriage, Project Resist partners with designers to produce new pin designs and patrons who subsidize production costs so all proceeds go to the organization of the month.
