Youth Activists Say They’re Ready to Lead

Students from Detroit, Novi, Grosse Pointe, Dearborn and other communities are meeting this weekend to learn to be better activists. They will be attending a workshop called “Strengthening Youth Leadership for Social Justice in Metro Detroit.”

The event was planned by fellows from the Youth Social Justice Fellowship, a branch of the Youth Dialogues on Race and Ethnicity Program  at the University of Michigan. Fellows Pamela Beltran, a junior at Cass Tech High School in Detroit, and Harry Susalla, a senior at Grosse Pointe South High School talk about the workshop and youth activism.
