AMP: Grassroots²

North Carolina


Vision: Ignite NC is a statewide coalition of youth organizers, mobilizing around multi-issue campaigns rooted in justice and equity. Through their fellowship program, IgniteNC organizes summits and workshops, to cultivate young leaders through skill building, collective leadership, and through building a shared, intersectional analysis around power, liberation, and oppression.

Impact: Since the start of March 2018, IgniteNC has held an “Activist Academy” connecting over forty young organizers in Greensboro, as well as a basebuilding and videography training, equipping young organizers with a multitude of tools and connections. Since its founding, IgniteNC has trained over 150 young people in its Fellows Program.
