Everyone then looks at Alma in awe when she says, “You now have an example of internalized racism.” The room goes silent. SAEDA (Student Activists Ending Dating Abuse) is a youth group offered in my county through the Rockland Shelter.
Its mission statement declares that SAEDA is a youth-led education and prevention program dedicated to celebrating diversity, challenging social norms, promoting leadership, and inspiring youth to ultimately end gender-based violence. It transforms youth into people who care about the world and want to change it in any way that they can.
It inspires and educates, and brings alive a new generation of people who will fight for their rights as well as others.
I can proudly say that I was a member of this group all through high school.
To be eligible for Youth Bureau funding, organizations must be incorporated as a not-for-profit agency under the laws of the State of New York and have tax-exempt status in accordance with the IRS Code.
