General team applications CLOSED | In-house reference recruitment ends 12/20
The 2nd Annual United Fates Festival youth activism and advocacy weekend presented by GenDelta Youth News Media and US ActivNet will be 4-7 September, 2020 (Labor Day Weekend) in Austin, Texas.
On Opening Day, GenDelta has called for a global “General Strike,” asking the question, What Do You #Strike4? (Get it? 9/4, Strike4?) That night, the Climate Debate & Rally in Zilker Park co-hosted by US Climate Queens and more enviro orgs TBA invites everyone with a heart to save the earth out for an evening in one of the most popular large outdoor event venues in Austin. Speakers TBA
Saturday, September 5 is all about Intersectional Feminism, the LGBTQ community, and gender politics.
Sunday, September 6 will open with prayer gatherings and continue with spotlights on faith-based social change organizations, as well as secular activism sessions. The day will close with the Scholars awards and Fall Ball for the closing night.
Monday, September 7 focuses on labor unions and professional membership organizations advocating for better conditions across the board. Fest closes in the afternoon.
Calendar is subject to shift, and sessions are not rigidly bound to be on-theme for the day they take place (that would be NONSENSE!) Outside of the Climate Debate Rally, Scholars program, and Fall Ball, United Fates Fest does not host sessions. All other events are hosted by individuals and organizations that are responsible for their own session’s management and execution. UFF is YOUTH-POWERED!
