Change Starts Today 2017
The 2017 Change Starts Today Conference aimed to educate delegates about the racial factor regarding various social justice topics present in today’s society, including equity and equality, youth homelessness, leadership, mental health, and environmental issues. We recognize the potential in all youth to become innovators of change and have an influence on their peers to take action and join a movement, and thus we used this conference to give our delegates the opportunity to develop useful skills to make a positive change in society. The focus of the conference was to motivate participants to critically consider the impacts of societal issues and to create a personal action plan in response to the problems they were the most passionate about. The conference supported delegates in their critical thought process through inspiration from relatable speakers and like minded delegates.
