“The 2020 Youth Leadership Team and Adult Logistics Team are busy planning all the details for the 9th Annual Youth & Peace Conference, which will be a completely virtual event. In keeping with the national movement to address racial equity and institutionalized violence, the Youth Team created the title of this year’s conference: “Cultivating Safer Communities by Centering Women of Color”.
15 workshops are happening during the conference, along with a Resource Fair Panel Presentation with representatives of community organizations addressing gender-based violence. Training for circle facilitators is happening during August & September to prepare more facilitators, especially youth and young adults, to lead dialogue circles at the 2020 YPC.
