Apathy is Boring is a national, youth-led organization that works to support young people in taking charge of the conditions they live in. One way we do this is through our RISE program, where young people work together to create and execute a community project in their city. It's an opportunity to build skills and grow social networks. 

The theme for our 2020 RISE program is the Gender Equality. For us, gender equality is about understanding and working to remove the barriers faced by folks with marginalized gender identities (i.e. two-spirit, trans, non-binary, women, etc). We understand gender as a spectrum and recognize all expressions within it taking into account the diverse lived experiences of discrimination and oppression informed by various other identities (i.e. race, class, ability, etc). Working towards Gender Equality involves the engagement of all genders and allies, and you don’t need to be an expert in the topic already, all are welcomed to apply. You just have to be open to learning!

You don’t need to be an expert in the topic already.
