Blizzard - Juggling the Double Identity of Part Time Activist, Full Time High School Snowflake

We tend to talk about dismantling oppressive systems in an adult lens. But what happens when you’re still in the throes of high school? Gen Z has made itself known for speaking out against injustice. With that reputation comes more discredibility and attacking from our peers and our family. Which days do you have the energy to call folks in and which days do you just want to get through third period? Why do we read the comments section and fume the entire scroll down? When is it okay to admit your doubt? Your insecurity? Your fear? Join four high schoolers of color (and their white history teacher) as we talk about what it means to advocate for others when no one gives a damn. This workshop is open to anyone interested in high school dynamics, but we push for teenage activists.
