Even though Kansas City didn't start out racially segregated, it did play a role in segregating cities in America, in fact, Kansas City still to remains to be a very segregated city today. The Progressive Youth Organization (PYO-KC) is an organization that is taking a stance on capitalism and segregation because they want students to join the act in order to earn a more self-governing educationsystem. They want schools to inform students about a system that misuses and tyrannizes them. One of the many issues that they focus on is about replacing the conservative and racist academic system that occurs today with a more self-governing and systematic educational system. They want an education system that informs enslaved students about our past …show more content…
The organization is based at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) and Metropolitan Community College (MCC) campuses around the city. The organization is a youth based organization which “mistrusts people that are for oppression or have a special interest to receive money and stand in the way of progress and social change” (Herrera). It seeks to bring forward “revolutionary and progressive politics” to a large-scale of people in Kansas City. They take stances on a lot of issues such as capitalism and segregation among other issues as well. The way the organization operates is done by building and supporting “national-in-form organizations (Black, Chicano/Mexicano, Asian, Latino, Muslim, Arab etc.) on campus in schools in which PYO has a presence OR multinational organizations that connect academic, cultural, economic and social needs with revolutionary and progressive politics” (Constitution). They create events around the city by organizing students to fight against problems that occur in the Kansas City area. For instance, one of the problems they want to draw attention to is the declining of Black and Latino enrollment at UMKC where the university sits on the old segregation line in Kansas City known as the ‘Troost Line' “Capitalism and Segregation at The Roots”.

The event is about getting students to march from UMKC, through Rockhurst to Troost and Paseo, the route starts and ends at UMKC, regarding one of their statues that was posted on Facebook. The purpose of the march is to call out on “the demands of the movement strike at the heart of the debt crisis by calling for a $15/hr. minimum wage for all campus workers, the cancelation of all student debt, and tuition-free public college” (Redzeal). What this means is that PYO-KC brought this movement to Kansas City to get students to fight against all the forms in which segregation has been institutionalized as well as to put an end to student debt. The Million Student March has shown it has been effective because the movement involved: “ high school, college, and graduate students, recent graduates, campus workers, former students, parents, and grandparents who came together on November 12th, 2015 to demand tuition-free public college, cancellation of all student debt, and a $15 minimum wage for all campus workers” and they also had “over 10,000 people in the streets calling for a free and fair system of education,” as mentioned in the “What Is #MillionStudentMarch” website. The movement has illustrated its successful and effectiveness because they recently hosted another Million Student March on the 13th of April of this year. This is all to prove
