Afia Blackwood-Foster

NYC Youth Organizer /

My name is Afia (she/her/hers) and I’m a youth organizer based in NYC. I’m an 18 year old Brooklyn native who’s astrological sign is Leo and loves all kinds of pasta. My connection to the work began when I experienced discrimination in the school system. I think it’s important for the youth to be the voices of tomorrow to disrupt these corrupt cycles.
