“My Role in the Social Justice Ecosystem” – Youth & Young Leaders Virtual Summit on addressing religious discrimination in our classrooms & communities

February 27, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


On Sunday, February 27th from 3:00 – 5:00 pm ET, Shoulder to Shoulder, Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC), and Seeds of Peace are coming together to host a Youth & Young Adult Virtual Summit on addressing religious discrimination in our classrooms and communities.

This interactive convening will be a chance for youth and young leaders to connect and learn new strategies for the work. Participants will share experiences, explore resources, and identify strengths, challenges, and hopes.

My Role in the Social Justice Ecosystem – Led by Anna Castro and UyenThi Tran Myhre with the Building Movement Project.

During moments of injustice, we feel an urgency to act. The source of this motivation is described beautifully by bell hooks: “The moment we choose to love we begin to move towards freedom, to act in ways that liberate ourselves and others.” However, at first we may feel overwhelmed and not know where to start or how to approach social justice work in a way that is in alignment to our strengths. Using the Social Change Ecosystem Map framework, we will identify our guiding principles, our role in our social change ecosystem, and plan for how to engage in social change movements in a sustainable way.
