Event Details

#MeToo. #BlackLivesMatter. #MarchForOurLives. The digital natives of “Generation Z” are redefining social justice and community organizing. Today’s protesters are more diverse than earlier movements, but are they also signaling something new about community youth organizing and, if so, what?

Join us virtually in the early afternoon on Wednesday, August 19 for a live conversation with professor Barry Checkoway, PhD, and community leaders from across the United States about how youth are engaging, organizing, and leading a new civil rights movement.

REGISTER HERE to attend this event via Zoom.
