I wanted to let you all know about a powerful example that we should all follow in our local communities. Simply reading the announcement, you can see young people working with adults to make youth voice heard and active. That’s powerful. If you’re in NYC, go to this event and let me know what you think!

The Youth 2 Youth forum will offer diverse youth aged 14-21 from across New York City the opportunity to connect, speak out and take action to make a difference in their schools and communities. Networking and workshops followed by performances and open mic. Food and drinks will be served. The forum will offer both immigrant and non-immigrant youth an opportunity to connect, speak out and take action on the issues facing their communities. Registration is required for organizations wishing to table or take part in the performances or open mic, and space is limited. The forum is sponsored by the New York Immigration Coalition, Union Settlement, the Coalition for Asian-American Children & Families, the New York State Youth Leadership Council and United Neighborhood Houses.
