Oakland Black Youth for the People’s Liberation (BY4PL) is a growing collective of young people under the age of 21 who have come together to utilize their power and creativity to create a present and future that is safe for Black people. In addition to expressing their anger and frustration with the current state of affairs for Black people in America – from environmental racism to the never-ending lynchings of Black people”, BY4PL seeks to chart a new path to change society so that we all may be free to breathe, live, and thrive.
