Youth Economic Justice

We can’t address structural racism without addressing how it blocks economic opportunity for Black and brown children, youth, and their families.

DC Action fights to ensure that young adults and their families can enter career fields of their choice, earn a living wage, and live in safe and secure housing, free from discrimination.

Too many young people in the District of Columbia experience homelessness without a parent or guardian — and go to sleep without the safety, stability and support of a family or a home. And, the pandemic further complicated their path to stability.

The Youth Economic Justice and Housing Coalition advocates with youth and youth-serving organizations in the District of Columbia for policies, funding, and programs that expand access to comprehensive support and services that disconnected and homeless youth need to successfully transition into stable and productive adulthood.
