Rural & Migrant Ministry, Inc. invites you to attend our:
YOUTH EMPOWERMENT SYMPOSIUM
Honoring 21 years of Rural & Migrant Ministry’s Youth Arts Group, (YAG) we cordially invite you to attend our day-long (1:00 pm to 6:00 pm) gathering and celebration of youth from throughout New York State.
With this symposium, we will honor the initiatives taken by the Youth Arts Group by bringing together young people and allies to build a cohesive, diverse community for Justice. Through presentations, workshops, collaborative and political art, attendees, their families, and allies will draw attention to this social justice struggle and invite the community to celebrate our successes, understand the issues, and build solidarity for the future of the movement.
The celebration will take place on Sunday, June 10, 2018 at The Villard Room at Vassar College, 124 Raymond Poughkeepsie, NY 12604
The deadline for registration is Friday, May 18th. The individual cost for registration will be $20 dollars, with lunch included (we apologize that we cannot accommodate those with food allergies or dietary restrictions). Also, we offer limited scholarships.
Members of YAG are committed to educating and empowering themselves and others, developing and practicing leadership skills, while acting as allies to each other and to those seeking social justice. Through engagement in creative action, the youth are dedicated to the task of influencing other youth to join our Mission to create political, economic, and social change.
Your support will give a clear message of empowerment and unity. Please join our efforts to create positive change in our lives and communities
