During this virtual conversation, youth leaders from around the southeast will give their ‘reports from the field’ about what they have seen and experienced in the wake of COVID-19. What does their community look like? What equity issues have been exacerbated by the pandemic? What action (or lack thereof) have city and state governments taken to slow the spread?
So what are we going to do about it? During this conversation, those same leaders (and maybe a few more) will discuss what they have seen and what is needed to be done. Ideas around the action that we can take to combat the inequities will be born and hopefully, a network of equity youth warriors will be born to support each other in these efforts across the region.
In this last installment of the series, youth leaders will be able to share some inspiring stories of the good they have seen and the changes that are already being born. Additionally, we will all hear from Nathaniel Q. Smith, the Founder and Chief Equity Officer of Partnership for Southern Equity as he imparts some wisdom on us all to go forth and be the change we want to see in the world.
