Who are we?

BYP100 is an activist member-based organization of Black 18-35 year olds, dedicated to creating justice and freedom for all Black people. We do this through building a collective focused on transformative leadership development, direct action organizing, advocacy and education using a Black queer feminist lens.

Our Mission

We train young black activists in direct action grassroots organizing skills, so they can build the power we need to transform our communities.
We mobilize young Black leaders on issues including ending criminalization and dismantling the prison industrial complex, expanding and securing LGBT and women’s rights.
We run campaigns using on the ground and digital tactics towards the goal of ending the criminalization of Black youth, racial profiling and police brutality.

Our Core Values


We are committed to engaging in meaningful action to fulfill our mission and realize our collective vision through a democratic, consensus driven process. Our actions are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic (yet visionary), and time-specific.

Challenge & growth

We challenge each other and promote each other’s growth within the collective. We challenge injustice and work towards creating a world where all Black people are free.

We are experts of our own experience

We do not represent all young Black people, but we strive to be reflective of all Black youth. We speak for ourselves, build spaces for young Black activists and engage in existing spaces where they speak for themselves.

Holistic Energy

We bring our entire selves to the work. Our efforts are driven with love, using a culture-centered approach (art, music, dance, call and response, songs and chants), while nurturing individual leadership, and building power through our collective. We apply energy to BYP100’s work and in the solidarity work we engage in with other marginalized groups.

Radical & purposeful inclusion of all Black people

We are committed to building and sustaining a collective that is reflective all young Black people, including but not limited to a diversity of: sex, gender, class, citizenship status, sexuality, physical ability, education experiences and faith.
