Youth Power for Social Justice: An Interactive Conversation
July 10 @ 8:00 am – 11:00 am PDT
About this event
How can I make a difference in the world? What does it mean to live a meaningful life? There’s so much going on in the world — how do I decide what I want to do?
If you’re a young person and you’ve ever asked yourself these questions, join us for “Youth Power for Social Justice: An Interactive Conversation.”
We are excited to offer this opportunity for children and youth in grades 6-12 (ages 11-18) and their families from the United States, South Asia, and the South Asian diaspora to engage with three inspiring leaders:
- Richa Chadha, Indian actress and human rights advocate
- Rajmohan Gandhi, historian, biographer, and grandson of Mahatma Gandhi
- Simran Jeet Singh, Sikh community leader, scholar and author of children’s book Fauja Singh Keeps Going
We’ll also hear from winners of the 2021 civil rights essay and art contest organized by Hindus for Human Rights and Indian American Muslim Council.
Each speaker will share short reflections on what they wish they had known when they were younger, and how they’ve been working for social justice in their lives today. We’ll then have plenty of time for youth attendees to ask our speakers any questions they’d like!
