FYRE Media Justice Camp 2022

FYRE CAMPER APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED

CLICK HERE TO APPLY TO BE A PEER LEADER AT FYRE CAMP 2022!

Calling all creatives, space facilitators & knowledge sharers,

SPARK Reproductive Justice NOW! is excited to announce that we are NOW accepting applications for our 2022 FYRE Media Justice CAMP!

The Fierce Youth Reclaiming & Empowering (FYRE) program develops the civic leadership of queer & trans youth of color and ally youth of color living in the Southeast in the Reproductive Justice movement.

The FYRE Media Justice Camp is a dynamic 4-day/3-night gathering of Southern Black women and Queer & Trans youth of color, ages 18-30, reimagining and creating media for our resilience, our lives and our communities.

This year’s FYRE Camp theme, “Ignite Your Voice,” seeks to hold intentional space for our base members to spark conversations through the development of their facilitation skills!

FYRE participants will come to the camp with a Reproductive Justice related workshop or training proposal. They will spend the weekend working with SPARK staff, RJ leaders and facilitation specialists to help develop their voice and work. FYRE Camp attendees will then virtually present their work during our “Re-Ignite” Virtual Mini Conference on Saturday, July 30th.

This year’s FYRE Media Justice Camp is scheduled to take place Thursday, July 21 to Sunday, July 24 in Atlanta, GA. All travel, boarding and food expenses are covered.

FYRE Camper Applications are NOW CLOSED.
