2019 Bridge Conference: Looking Back, Facing Forward
As we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us, how do we ensure that young people can draw upon the past to ground their cultural identities, and raise the advancement for equity to the forefront? How do we widen our lens to truly acknowledge the expertise young people hold? How can we transform the roots of our history and shift systems to uplift the cultural identities of this next generation?
This year’s theme, Looking Back, Facing Forward, explores the importance of culture and the role it plays in shaping and empowering young people and their communities. We will hear from speakers who will share their knowledge and strategies to better create systems, organizations, and programs that affirm their intersectional identities.
Stay tuned for more information regarding this year's thought-provoking keynotes!
