A group is being started by a few students at HeLa, Camas, and Heritage called the Clark County Youth Action Council. This group aims to bring together student social justice leaders and advocates at every school in Clark County in order provide them with the training and network they need to promote productive discussion and action around social justice in their schools.
Our inaugural event will be on June 21st (the day after school gets out) from 10-1 at WSUV.
WSUV diversity director Anthony Kelley will be hosting a workshop on racial identity and discussions around race. Anthony is highly trained in this, as his background is in building post-apartheid unity in South Africa, and increasing diversity in colleges with low diversity. Our group would kindly like to ask you all to share this event with students who are interested in making a change, passionate about social justice, or merely might enjoy learning about racial identity. Additionally, I am organizing a carpool for students who might be limited transportation-wise.
Please do not hesitate to contact Andrew H, Maddie T, Nicole D, or Meah W with any questions, comments, or suggestions.
