The Youth and Peace Conference is back! Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” Many people want to see much more peace, well-being and love in the world and much less violence, fear and hatred. The Youth and Peace Conference, now an annual event in Tucson, intends to be a powerful force for peace and nonviolence, especially among young people in our community. Through educational workshops, dynamic speakers and inspiring performances, conference participants gain awareness and strengthen skills for recognizing and reducing all forms of violence (e.g., bullying, relationship violence, sexual assault, hate, bigotry, negative self-talk). The conference is intended to increase the capacity of youth and adults to effectively communicate, peacefully resolve conflicts, and courageously confront injustice.
The conference coordinating team is committed to youth leadership and youth empowerment in all aspects of the planning and production of this event.
