Check Out Highlights From This Year’s #DisruptTheNarrative Summit

“Girls are the experts of their own experience.” “I’m furious the cost of being a marginalized voice online is your humanity.” “Don’t let people stand alone when they’re speaking up and speaking out for what is right, what is just, and what is fair.”

These are just some of the gems of justice from our 2017 #DisruptTheNarrative: Youth Leadership Summit. Thanks to youth activist Gabrielle Battle, Anita Sarkeesian of Feminist Frequency, political leader Kimberly Ellis for sharing your wisdom with us. Together, with Star Wars creative director Pablo Hidalgo; workshop leaders like IGNITE, MAKERS, and Youth Speaks, and impact partners like 23andMe, AT&T, Lucasfilm, and Oath for Good, we inspired our 250 youth attendees to create, organize, and lead.

Check out the Summit’s highlights and sign up to be a Youth Rep to continue the conversation. Together, we can build a community of thoughtful, committed citizens and change the world one individual and community at a time.

Onwards,
