The California Coalition Against Sexual Assault / PreventConnect, the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence, and the National Sexual Violence Resource are on a mission to end sexual violence in one generation!
To help us build collective power and voice to achieve this, we are organizing a Youth Summit in March 2017 in Washington DC. The purpose of this event will be to engage more than 100 High School students at a 3-day summit. At the Youth Summit, participants will engage in leadership and learning opportunities through three tracks:
- Using social media and messaging to change public opinion and discourse about gender-based violence
- Leveraging the influence of ‘sports’ and athletes to end gender-based violence
- Catalyzing individuals and communities through community organizing and policy advocacy to end gender-based violence
