YLF Crews

The Youth Liberation Front functions as a decentralized network of autonomous youth crews. There are many different groups of YLF kids all around the country, with kids forming new groups all the time. All crews are completely self-directed and autonomous, but we all try to support each other and collaborate on shit. If you and some friends want to be a YLF crew, then you already are! Reach out to some of the existing groups below and we’d be happy to get in touch, but you never need to ask permission.

Hopefully this non-exhaustive list of some YLF groups can help you get in touch with some other radical kids in your area.

Practice good security habits and digital hygiene when using this list, and in general. Please don’t contact any of these groups with or about any incriminating OR individually identifying information.

Have fun and don’t get caught. ????

Calls to Action General

July 25th: Call For A Day Of Action In Solidarity With Portland; Against The Federal Invasion

Originally published July 2020, on the old site.


The Youth Liberation Front (YLF) makes the following call for a day of action in solidarity with the ongoing resistance in Portland.

On July 25th, youth abolitionists are calling for a national and global march against the institution of policing. We are demanding justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Stephon Clark, Philando Castille, Eric Garner, Quanice Hayes, Patrick Kimmons, Sean Monterrosa and the thousands more taken by the hands of racist police. Time and time again, the neo-liberal state has offered promises of “reform” with no real action ever taken. The time for discussing reform is over, we need full abolition for our communities to be safe and free from rampant police terror.

We are calling on all abolitionists, youth or non-youth, to coordinate mass protests on July 25th to show the world that the fire of this uprising is still burning strong, and that flames will just keep getting bigger until the police state has been dismantled once and for all.

This call to action comes right after Trump has announced he will be sending the federal troops that have been occupying Portland, Oregon, all across the nation. The Federal Government has already waged war against Portland, which has been protesting everyday for 50 days straight, and now feds are going to war against protesters everywhere in an attempt to take control and snuff out the fire of this uprising. We must become more powerful than them.

Form an affinity group.

Coordinate an action.

Get tactical.

Mask up.

Bring a friend.

Show up.
