BYP 100’s Charlene Carruthers makes AARP’s ’11 Civil Rights Leaders Under 50′
BYP 100’s National Coordinator Charlene Carruthers is making moves. Most recently the young activist and leader made AARP’s “11 Civil Rights Leaders Under 50.”
Carruthers’ passion is mentoring young activists to become leaders who fight for the rights of voters, workers and immigrants and against unequal treatment of women. According to her Twitter profile, she’s “living at the intersection of blackness + womanhood + discovery.”
She shares the list with Newark, N.J. Mayor Cory Booker, CNN Crossfire host Van Jones and U.S. Congressional candidate Mia Love.
Did we mention that she’s the youngest to appear on the list?
This is only the beginning.
