Number 44 – Jasilyn Charger
A mental health crisis among teens at the Cheyenne River Reservation in South Dakota inspired top human Jasilyn Charger and her friends to start One Mind Youth Movement. The group offered young people on their reservation a place to connect with one another, and they eventually began incorporating activism into their mission. Through OMYM, Jasilyn organized an anti-pipeline water run that brought together Oceti Sakowin youth from around the country to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline. She went on to co-found the International Indigenous Youth Council to empower other young people to fight for their communities. We applaud her for her passionate activism and desire to fight for justice.
