We Fight: Protecting Northern Michigan’s Youth Mental Health

We Fight is a self-organizing, citizen-led community guided by the Surgeon General’s recent advisory with one agenda and one agenda only: to better protect our Northern Michigan kids’ mental health. 

We’re here to connect and support the many good things happening in Northern Michigan.

We’re here to fill gaps, strengthen weak links, grow community awareness and build political will with our partners.

We’re here to convene conversations and tell stories to foster strong relationships built on trust and respect.

We’re here because we care. We’re here to fight for our kids.

To date, 1000+ people have joined We Fight. We all have a role to play in protecting our kids’ mental health.

The kids need you. We need you.
