Million Hoodies is home to a national network of emerging human rights leaders committed to building a movement for dignity and democracy.

Through a chapter-based model, Million Hoodies members develop the tools to improve the lives and conditions of marginalized people. We develop the leadership of Black and Brown young people aged 18-35. Our network counts membership in eight local communities and college campuses.


Chapters on college campuses and in local communities serve as the indispensable core of our network and as the foundation of a radical Black and Brown led grassroots political infrastructure reaching from Riverside, California to Greensboro, North Carolina. Without strong chapters run by effective leaders, our network would not be where it is today: we believe that we are more effective as a whole than as the sum of our individual parts.

Chapters bring together young people of color to delve into meaningful community engagement, robust leadership development, and effective strategies for direct action campaigns.
