The Black Youth Project 100 (BYP100) is dedicated to the long-term fight to end the criminalization of Black youth. We believe that strategies to achieve this goal and ultimately transform our lives and communities require grassroots organizing and public policy advocacy at the local, state, and federal level.

Thus BYP100 wants decision makers, elected officials, and law enforcement agencies to implement and enforce our Agenda to Keep Us Safe (ATKUS) which includes:

  • Increased Community Oversight & Accountability over Law Enforcement Agencies
  • Repealing “Crimes of Youth”
  • Mike Brown’s Law – Body Cameras on Police
  • Increased DOJ Enforcement of Existing Civil Rights Law
  • Demilitarization of Police
  • Ending the War on Drugs: Marijuana Decriminalization

“Given our collective experiences as activists, we are compelled to approach the work of Black liberation with strategic thinking and actions. Public policy advocacy sits at the intersection of both,” says BYP100 National Coordinator Charlene Carruthers.

 “Too often young Black people are only engaged to be bodies at a rally or as voters for a candidate but aren’t asked to do the visioning and thinking that is necessary to create the kind of communities we want to build.” — Terrance Laney (Washingon, DC), BYP100 National Public Policy Chair.                              

“The time couldn’t be more ripe than now to transform the collective pain of all the state-sponsored violence happening in our communities into power.”– Janae Bonsu (Chicago), ATKUS co-author.
