Youth Jobs Rally Turns Out Over 1,000 Teens

Dylan Lazerow and Dan Gelbtuch organized with the Youth Jobs Coalition, a statewide advocacy group, and brought together 1,000+ teens to march on the statehouse for youth jobs funding on Thursday, February 20, 2014. The action received over 50 local and national press hits as far as Alaska and Texas in addition to stories in the Boston Globe, in the Boston Herald, on WBUR, Univision, NECN and on Fox 25.  Eight additional JOIN alumni and current fellows turned out to support the teens.
