Youth Impactors in Activism

August 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Please join ADL NY/NJ for the first webinar in our Conversations for Change series, featuring a conversation with ADL’s Impactors. Our student impactors will discuss what their activism looks like today, and share how their experiences with ADL impacted their journey.

ADL’s Peer Training Program was created in the aftermath of the Crown Heights Riots, when student leaders at Clara Barton High School were confused and intrigued about the racial tensions and the upheaval in their community. ADL was invited to facilitate a series of discussions around stereotypes, bias and discrimination. These workshops became the pilot for our current Peer Training Program for high school students.

This past year, these ADL Impactors had the opportunity to attend a civil rights themed mission to Selma, Alabama, and worked with student leaders around the country to develop the skills and advocacy tools that are needed to combat bias and catalyze change in their communities.

We hope you will join us for a meaningful conversation with these inspiring young leaders to hear about their experience with ADL, what their activism looks like today, and recommendations they have for future young leaders.

The webinar is for young individuals and families seeking ways to get further involved with ADL’s mission.

For more information, please contact Kellianne Holland, Assistant Education Director, at kholland@adl.org.
