Afia Blackwood-Foster

NYC Youth Organizer /

Afia (she/her/hers) is our Youth Organizer based in NYC. She’s a Brooklyn native whose astrological sign is Leo and she loves all kinds of pasta. A strong writer who builds power through her voice, her connection to organizing work began when she 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!”
