This event is being made possible by grassroots efforts of youth deeply rooted in the Birmingham area who believe that it’s important for young people to be equipped with the knowledge, skills, community support and confidence needed to contend with some of the most pressing and complicated social, economic, and political problems we face today. The time for youth to be heard is NOW! The Power Shift Network is supporting this project in addition to local community partners.
