67 Sueños is an an Oakland-based youth organizing program. We center organizing, political education, ARTivism (art + activism), and trauma-healing work. 67 Sueños works with Latinx undocumented youth and youth from mixed-status families.
67 Sueños was born in 2011 out of the recognition that 67 percent of migrant youth would be excluded from the DREAM Act.
We provide leadership development with an abolitionist lens. We engage youth in local campaigns. These include working to end youth incarceration and militarized policing of BIPOC communities.
Youth enter the 67 space with unique stories of struggle, resilience, and survival. We build on their stories by providing them with critical thinking tools to comprehend larger systems of injustices.
We center their voices through storytelling, social media, video, speakers, art, and healing. Youth challenge their own prejudices and their community to work towards a better future.
Soñando y Cambiando: A vision to heal our communities
This mural was inspired by a youth 10-point plan led by young people from 67 Sueños and other youth organizations in the Free Our Kids (FOK) Coalition in Alameda County. The youth from the FOK have a vision to change the way we approach juvenile justice in Alameda County.
