Stand Against Racism: The Importance of Youth Voice

May 8, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us for our annual Stand Against Racism event! We’re going virtual!

The MKI Alliance for Racial Equity, presents a panel and presentation about the importance of youth voice in advancing racial equity.

Including youth in conversations on race is necessary to build more racially inclusive and equitable communities. It is imperative that we take the necessary action to make sure uplift our youth and make their voices heard. We must begin cultivating the next generation of young professionals of color in order to enable them to continue doing work in and for their communities. Let’s begin thinking about who is doing the work in our communities and for whom?

Local CDCs and youth serving organizations can play an important role in engaging youth in racial equity work to enhance their leadership development. Through an open dialogue, this virtual experience will focus on youth leadership development and the adults that support them. We hope that joy us for this important conversation!

Moderator: Melinda Vega, Community Building/Environment Coordinator, NOAH
