The Howard University YP4 Fellows action plan was focused on raising consciousness around issues of affirmative action and civil rights. These YP4 Fellows focused their awareness-raising efforts on the impact that judicial nominations may have on these policies. The Fellows, in conjunction with Young People For, held their first training on April 6th, 2005, which included a speaker�s panel on these issues. In addition, they teamed up with People for the American Way Foundation to hold a Fillibusterathon on April 8th, 2005 where Howard students spoke in favor of the Fillibuster for six hours.
