    Networking Night: Youth Movements and Leadership

    Increased youth activism has been one of the highlights in recent years. As we have seen time and time again, young people are powerful and incredible directors of change when given the opportunity to engage and blossom. Join us as we have a conversation centered on youth movements and leadership, where we'll hear from rising young leaders and adults that work to empower our youth.  

    Stay tuned for the agenda and panel information. Appetizers, Spanish interpretation, and childcare will be provided. Contact Maryan Osman for any questions and interpretation requests.
