Pa. Immigration and Citizenship Coalition Annual Youth Convening
Aug 21, 2021 @ 9:00 am - Aug 22, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
The Pa. Immigration and Citizenship Coalition, of which LAMPa is a member, believes in the important role and impact of young leaders in the movement toward a just world. This is why the PICC has continued to engage immigrant youth from across the state in advocacy, provided support and direct leadership development. In order to ensure that youth voices are at the core of the immigrant rights movement and decision-making, PICC has developed a youth membership initiative and continued to host an annual Summer Immigrant and Refugee Leadership Youth Convening.
The convening will bring together immigrant youth from different walks of life across Pennsylvania. During the weekend, attendees are able to share their stories, develop leadership and organizing skills and build relationships with other youth who share similar experience and goals.
This event is open to those 14-24 who are immigrants, refugees, or children of immigrants and living in Pennsylvania.
This year’s convening will be a 2-day virtual event. Please register as soon as possible so organizers can accommodate any language needs. Learn more and register here.
