This button represents the greater cause of youth activism, young people organizing as a community to affect social change in hopes of creating a better world. Back in the late 1950s, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. engaged youth activists in helping to protest racist law enforcement practices. Youth activism gained ground as a larger social movement during the public protests, demonstrations, and anti-war advocacy of the 1960s and 1970s. The “flower-power” of young activists during this time period set a precedent for today’s modern youth activism.
