We’re building a new class of progressive political organizers, campaigners, analysts, and future elected officials who are ready to take on the unchecked and unjust militarism of U.S. foreign policy.
Young people across the country should feel empowered to tell their Representatives to end unjust wars. But, too often they are told they are too naive or young to challenge U.S. foreign policy. Basically: they are gaslighted into thinking their opinions are not valid, and as a result, never explore how their own voices can change the policies that are already shaping their future.
As Alice Walker wrote, “The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”
At Just Foreign Policy, we know that bold, transformative leadership comes from people of all backgrounds and people of every age. We started the Campus Advocate program to provide students with opportunities to advance progressive change in U.S. foreign policy.
