Teen Convening a Success

Building Bridges Teen Convening at the Stone House

On Feb 1-2, teen activists and adult allies organizing to end the school-to-prison pipeline, fight racism, work for LGBTQ liberation, food justice, and other issues, held a gathering to chart out the next steps for the building bridges to create a stronger youth movement. High School students from across NC were able to talk about issues effecting them in their schools and communities. With time to make new friends and connections, students are coming together to create change in their communities. This was the first-ever retreat for high school students that was completely planned by the youth. While adults were charged with logistics and transportation, youth created their own program and activities. The student movement in NC is growing thanks to the amazing youth who are leading the way.
