Teen Summit: Stop the Violence
The Teen Summit: Stop the Violence provides safe and artistic spaces for youth to process the adversity they have faced in their lives, brainstorm solutions to prevent and reduce gun violence, and become change agents. Youth will participate in workshops on conflict resolution, skill-building and creative nonviolent expression through music, writing, visual arts, and media.
The summit includes a keynote presentation by Kevin Powell, a youth panel moderated by Farajii Muhammad, and a culminating spoken word and hip hop performance by Speak Life Tour that promotes peace and non-violence. Special guest is Lil' Key of The Rap Game.
Workshop presenters include Art with a Heart, Baltimore Peace by Piece/American Friends Service Committee, Griot's Eye, Kariz Kids Youth Enrichment Services, Speak Life Tours, and Warriors Entertainment.
Recommended for ages 12 - 19. Free with lunch included, but online registration is required.
Sponsored by Baltimore City Health Department Office of Youth Violence Prevention, Annie Casey Foundation, Comcast, and Burger King Mondawmin, with special thanks to the Baltimore Alumnae Chapter Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
