One-year renewal grants of $30,000 in 2012 and 2013 will support Providence Youth Student Movement’s youth organizing efforts and increase the leadership capacity of Southeast Asian (SEA) youth to mobilize around LGBTQ justice and improved police-community relations through the SOUL and seaQuel organizing programs. During the coming year PrYSM will continue its work to improve the demographic record-keeping on Southeast Asians in Rhode Island through their visibility campaign, dismantle the systems and practices of criminalization of Southeast Asian youth through police racial profiling and organizing to address LGBTQ Southeast Asian youth issues locally and nationally.
