More on the Youth Summit
On the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, youth leaders from Youth Service Project’s summer Arts and Leadership program invite you to a for-youth-by-youth summit focused on fighting for education as a basic human right. Youth will connect the structural violence of educational injustice with on the ground violence prevention efforts on the streets of Chicago.
Youth will lead popular education workshops and panel discussions about youth-led community organizing, restorative justice, community-led resistance to police brutality, and arts as resistance.
There will be a community block party with hip hop and spoken word performances, live graffiti and mural art, breakdancing, and a bar-b-que feast.
