Youth Summit July 12-14 Gets Political


Our second round of Youth Summit kicked off this week with a new group of teens from metro Atlanta. In the video below, a group volunteered their reflections of their second day. They visited the State Capitol and met with Jennifer Owens, the advocacy director of Georgia Organics and learned about advocacy in their own backyard. After a whirlwind tour, they met with Georgia Minority House Leader Rep. Stacey Abrams and participated in an exercise to either pass or strike down "HB-1": the ban of peanuts in school systems.
