The Youth Justice and Power Union (YJPU) is a community grassroots organization that centers the voices of black and brown youth in Boston. We are ran and organized  entirely by black and brown youth from Boston. At YJPU, we focus on leadership development and community building through mentorship, political education, campaign organizing and base-building. Our mission is to build collective power in an effort to address systemic issues, at the root, happening in communities and confront them through organizing and direct action.
