When: Sat., Jan. 21, 3-6 p.m. 2017
Join Stand Up S.A. in a youth forum, of at least six ranging in ages 16-30, on how violence affects communities, particularly the youth. They would like to use this opportunity to advocate and encourage youth to give voice and organize for resilience and empowerment. Stand Up S.A would like to help outsiders understand, with more clarity, the lived experiences of young people burdened with trauma, marginalization, and oppression. The youth represented will be either violence survivors, former perpetrators, and family or friends of people whose lives have been lost due to violence.
