5th Annual Youth Peace Conference
The 5th Annual Youth Peace Conference will be held virtually on Saturday, April 10th, 2021 from 9:15 am - 4:30 pm. Youth from grades 8 - 12 are welcome to register at http://www.youthpeaceconferencemd.org The Peace Committee of SSMM supports this student-run social justice and community building summit in honor of the legacies of Lee Stern and Bayard Rustin. A team of teens in Howard County are organizing this year’s conference “Youth activism: resistance and radical reform”. From the website: "The theme "Resistance and Radical Reform" is most pressing and relevant now more than ever, as youth are coming together across the world to organize in support of causes and movements such as the Black Lives Matter movement and the fight for environmental awareness, among many others. Youth are demanding that broken, oppressive systems be rebuilt and reformed. At the 2021 Youth Peace Conference, students will gain resources on how to peacefully organize, resist injustice, and create change within their communities. Contact Uma Ribeiro, lead organizer, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for more information.
