Participate in workshops on a variety of topics, including the school to prison pipeline, memoir writing, immigration and asylum seekers, social media, media making, and social justice, and justice and self-expression. Make your voice heard in our social justice themed Open Mic session. Explore services and opportunities at local nonprofits during our Resource Fair. And hear from Keynote Speaker Wes Matthews, the 2018-2019 Philadelphia Youth Poet Laureate. Learn how the topics you care most about intersect, and channel your inner activist!
