You are Seeds of Fire. Your experience, your goals, your dreams, and your hope: that’s who we are. Seeds of Fire invites youth centered, young adult and intergenerational groups in the South and Appalachia to get involved, get funding, and join others in events to move forward organizing for social change.  Let’s collectively build capacity among young leaders and adult allies in the South, Appalachia, and across the country; make connections between our issues locally, regionally, nationally and globally while forming lasting relationships and networks to create the Appalachia, South and world we wish to see.  Highlander and Seeds of Fire is committed to creating a world liberated of all forms of oppression and that understanding guides our work.
