The 21st annual Youth Social Justice Forum is digital! Stay Tuned to this page for more information about our 2020 Youth Social Justice Forum! Sign up for the Forum here.
Every fall, for over 10 years, the ACLU of Wisconsin Foundation has joined community partners in sponsoring a day-long event, the Youth Social Justice Forum, to teach high school students to exercise, protect, and celebrate their civil rights and liberties. This year, in consideration of COVID, we will hold our first-ever digital Youth Social Justice Forum.
We will be providing the same great programming on items, such as public art, civics, government, racial equity, LGBTQ+ rights, restorative justice, and other topics relevant to youth rights and responsibilities. However, instead of having a one-day event, we will have monthly digital webinars focusing on specific topics and art techniques led by community activists and artists.
A schedule of events will be posted soon on the website. Stay tuned
