The convening will take place at Palmetto Scholars Academy (7499 Dorchester Road North Charleston, SC 29418) on Saturday November 16, 2019 from 10:00am – 6:00pm.

CYAP’s first-ever Campaign Convening will be a day-long forum focused on our two campaigns: Safer Schools Without SROs and Sex Education Beyond Abstinence.

Attendees will be able to share their experience with policing and sex education in their own schools and learn how to get involved in local campaign work!

CYAP is an abolitionist organization that centers political education and community organizing to build power among girls, trans youth, and gender nonconforming youth. We envision a South Carolina transformed by the radical organizing of girls, trans youth, and gender nonconforming youth, where our communities work collectively to dismantle the existing structures of domination, violence, and punishment that shape their lives and create spaces for growth and healing in their place.
