About the event
Join us for October’s book club discussion session on Women, Race and Class by Angela Y. Davis. The YOUth ACT book club serves to carve a space in which YOUth ACT community members can engage with deeply important topics in a manner that is critical, radical, and intersectional. Every month, we release reading recommendations as well as a visual guide based on the chosen topic. Its purpose is to create a (non-exhaustive) hub of easily accessible and diverse resources whose forms extend beyond books, including but not limited to graphic novels, podcasts, films, documentaries, and explanatory videos. We organize a Book Club discussion session on the last Sunday of each month to close-read and discuss one pre-chosen text of our monthly recommended readings. This month’s topic is Understanding Capitalism. In the spirit of anti-capitalism, we ask that you refrain from purchasing your resources from providers such as Amazon, and turn to your local bookshop. This book club is in collaboration with The American Book Center. You can support your local bookstore by buying the books in the store or on their website. Students get a 10% discount. https://abc.nl/highlights/youthact-book-club Given the current government regulations regarding COVID-19, this event will be taking place on Zoom.

By offering young people accessible opportunities to acquire practical skills, develop actionable ideas and diversify their network, we hope to bridge the gap between youth and the social impact space.
