Transformative Movement Builders (TMB)

TMB, is a youth-led community organizing program that uses a racial justice lens to build the skills we need as young people to transform Ithaca into a more equitable and socially just community.  TMB brings together racially & culturally diverse High School aged individuals to co-create a learning community that develops the hard skills of community organizing & racial justice leadership, the analytic tools of political education, and the social consciousness of cultural intelligence to take effective action for social change.
