Summary

In Mexico, racism is another variable to the huge inequalities that racialized people (Indigenous, AfroMexican, and brown-skinned) still experience, although racism has been historically swept under the rug due to our colonial past. This has prevented a unified antiracist movement, so our project aims to provide young leaders the necessary tools to help them develop their own creative solutions to promote racial justice in their communities and to create a network of future antiracist activists.

Challenge

According to several studies, in Mexico, 60% of the people feel discriminated by their skin tone, when more than 80% of the Mexican population is racialized. Given our historical background, talking about Mexican racism results uncomfortable which makes it difficult to coordinate a strong antiracist movement and find creative solutions to fight this historical oppression.

Solution

YALP will provide ten (10) Mexican young leaders from racialized backgrounds the tools to boost their leadership skills and knowledge on racism, through workshops and masterclasses with specialists and activists. Also, the YALP will help them implement their own racial justice projects within their communities.

Long-Term Impact

YALP's team will give each student the proper follow-up with their projects for six months to make sure they have the right support during that time. These projects will have a positive ripple effect to erradicate racism in Mexico. The student will also find in their classmates a long-life network of other new generation activists in order to consolidate the antiracist movement in Mexico.
