Listen to Youth Voice!
Each year at the White Privilege Conference the space is created for youth to learn, creatively express themselves and share their voices in support of social justice and equity.
In this space called the Youth Leadership Conference, high school youth from around the country come together to explore and understand white privilege, power, oppression, racism, self identity, and allied living. The outcome is strong team of more than 150 youth who are connected and committed to developing and sharing strategies for community action and social change.
New Wilderness Project (Benjie and Maketa) were part of a national team of facilitators and educators who had the honor of working with these incredible youth. Thanks to our friends and colleagues from Start Dialogue (Tarah Fleming), Headrush (Rosa Gonzalez), WadeInTheWorld (Wade Colwell-Sandoval), Athenian School (Lizette Dolan) and Head-Royce School (Willie Adams) - and of course Dr. Eddie Moore Jr. (America And Moore) Much respect!
Listen to Youth Voice speak their truth OUT LOUD!!
