Central Oregon middle school students, high school students and educators are invited to participate in a virtual event to examine the impact of systemic racism. The event will begin with the National Youth Summit on Teen Resistance to Systemic Racism, an online outreach program organized by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in partnership with Smithsonian Affiliations, and will continue into a regional summit. The virtual regional summit will allow teens to participate in breakout sessions to explore various issues. Each breakout group will be led by a facilitator who shares identity with the group. In addition, a panel of local youth activists will also share how they’re engaging in social justice issues at the regional level.
