Josh Weise, a United States youth and Project Director of the “Adopt a Negotiator” project, calls to USA youth not to be discouraged by the lack of activity of their government on this front and to instead, mobilize at the local and state levels. He asks them not to lose sight of the bigger vision of national change, saying this will come out of the grassroots mobilization. He asks youth to make sure their efforts are adding to real change on the ground.
