Raliance seeks to bring together a community of diverse activists whose stories have not been central to the movement and use this national space to elevate the visibility of these stories in order to eradicate gender-based violence. Through supporting youth and nurturing the conditions for their own empowerment, Raliance hopes to encourage youth to bring learning and activism back to their communities to end gender-based violence. To help us build collective power and voice to achieve this, we are convening ThisGEN: Youth Summit from March 6th-10th 2017 in Washington DC. This 5-day event will engage sophomore and junior High School students in leadership and learning opportunities through three tracks:
- Using social media and messaging to change public opinion and discourse about gender-based violence
- Leveraging the influence of sports and athletes to end gender-based violence
- Catalyzing individuals and communities through community organizing and policy advocacy to end gender-based violenceCatalyzing individuals and communities through community organizing and policy advocacy to end gender-based violence
