On October 15th, from 10 am to 3:30 pm (PT), Black Women for Positive Change, in partnership with Everytown for Gun Safety, Peace in Education, and California State University Dominguez Hills Negotiations, Conflict Resolution, and Peacebuilding Program, is hosting a series of online Gen-Z dialogues. This will be capstoned by an online dialogue and workshop event where Gen-Z’s can discuss topics that are important to them. Issues such as voting, social activism, generational communication, and more will be the focus of these discussions. We will learn about tools and resources to support future goals and aspirations. This event is designed by using Gen-Z voices and input. We will use a series of dialogues with young people to reflect on what they feel these types of events should look and feel like.
