Assata’s Daughters is a Black women-led organization formed by Black feminists and organizers in the south side of Chicago as a reaction to the violence in their neighborhoods. Through training and then participating in coalition-based campaigns, Assata’s Daughters provides mentorship for Black youth to learn to address the many social issues that impact their world. Our partners at Brave New Films recently profiled the organization in a new short as part of their #YouthinAction series. Today we’ll play that short film that showcases how Assata’s Daughters fight for change and overcome many obstacles, including the recent fire in their Chicago headquarters.
