Press are also invited to interview YES! youth leaders after the Town Hall on why Latinx and multiraccial youth organized this town hall, and more broadly why Milwaukee’s Black and Brown youth are the future. YES! organizers see getting involved in local politics as a critical piece in realizing immigrant and racial justice in Milwaukee in 2021 and onwards.
