Philadelphia Black History Collaborative: Youth Driven Advocacy

  • Kensington High School for the Creative and Performing Arts 1901 North Front Street Philadelphia, PA, 19122 United States (map)

UrbEd is excited to be a presenter at the Philadelphia Black History Collective in their second annual conference. The theme of the conference is about raising student voice and student narratives and this is core to UrbEd's mission as well. UrbEd team members Zoey and Horace will be presenting on how we can maximize student voice, starting in the classroom and reaching to all aspects of education. We'll be building on historic themes in reform such as the student walkout 50 years ago and current issues such as a voting student on the local school board. We'll be engaging students, educators, advocates, and reformers about how we can effectively educate students about advocacy and equip students to use their voice. More information about the event can be found here and we hope you can join us for the conversation!
