This Sunday, be sure to check out Smithsonian Associates’ Youth Leadership and Activism virtual panel; it starts at 4pm ET, and is a free public program you can attend (with registration) via Zoom.
OnRaé Watkins, senior manager of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden’s teen programs, will moderate a conversation with prominent youth leaders who co-founded organizations and movements that explicitly connect racism and inequality with their advocacy for policy change. Climate-justice activists Zanagee Artis and Vic Barrett will join Nialah Edari and Chelsea Miller, co-founders of Freedom March NYC, to discuss their motivations, community-organizing efforts and plans to build a more inclusive and socially conscious future.
Check out all the details and register here.
This program is part of the Smithsonian’s Race, Community, and Our Shared Future Conversation Series supported by Bank of America.
