In partnership with the Youth Initiative of Race Matters for Juvenile Justice (RMJJ), this summit will highlight the voices, passions, and talent of young people with collaborative art, live performance, and community conversation. The schedule below outlines the experience that all are welcome to drop in and participate in at any point throughout the day. The summit is created to allow high-school-aged youth to shine by way of both artistic and activist expression, and for this reason, are especially encouraged to participate.
