A professor at California State-Los Angeles (CSU-LA) is trying to raise money for a ‘youth activist camp’ being organized through the Los Angeles chapter of Black Lives Matter:

Professor Anthony J. Ratcliff is the organizer of “Youth Activist Camp and Resistance Space 2017,” a “Black youth-centered resistance space” which promises to teach black children as young as 10 “strategies for organizing social justice campaigns” and “direct action tactics” to fight against racism.

Ratcliff is considered one of the leading Black Lives Matter activists in Southern California, along with his colleague CSULA colleague Melina Abdullah, who has retweeted recruitment memes for the summer camp.
