East Coast Solidarity Summer (ECSS) is a weekend-long leadership and empowerment program for youth of South Asian and Desi heritage who are passionate about social justice.
ECSS provides a radical and inclusive space for youth of South Asian/Desi heritage (including those of mixed heritage) to examine key social justice issues and take action! Past workshops have included topics such as identity, immigration, sexism, racism, mental health, and capitalism. The goal of the retreat is to engage participants in critical reflection, coalition building, activism, and organizing. We believe that a united, educated, and inspired collective of young activists and organizers is crucial to creating social change both locally and globally.

This summer will be the first ever Bay Area Solidarity Summer (BASS). We are looking for Desi teens to participate, volunteers, and funds. Will you be there?
On July 22nd, South Asian American teenagers from across the San Francisco Bay Area will convene for a life-changing experience. The youth will be attending the first ever Bay Area Solidarity Summer (BASS), a four-day leadership camp for youth of South Asian heritage seeking to learn about progressive issues, gain organizing skills, connect with other South Asian activists, and develop themselves into leaders. The all-inclusive camp will provide space for young people to learn skills on how to be a social activist, as well as learn about issues affecting the South Asian community both locally and globally.
BASS is open to youth of South Asian heritage ranging in age from 14 to 19 years old. The camp costs only $50, which covers all housing and food expenses for four days and three nights. Held in the beautiful Center for Third World Organizing Training and Retreat Center (often described as the “CTWO Mansion”), the intense camp will cover a wide range of issues such as Creative Arts and Action, Racial Profiling, Hip Hop Revolutionaries, and Environmental Justice. An important component of the curriculum will be a look back at the 100 years of history of South Asian Bay Area student activism. [link]
