123 S. Linn St.
Keynote Speaker: Jackie Majerus, Founder/Director, Youth Journalism International. Moderated by Chendu Jayachandiran. This event includes a panel discussion with local youth, and a gallery walk exploring visual representations of international and domestic violence and terrorism.

Violence, a human rights, social, and public health problem, is a major stressor in kids' lives at home and abroad. Too ften the threats & violence experienced by children are hidden in language that makes some forms of violence socially acceptable and others not. Using visual cues and personal stories participants will explore the links between violence at home and abroad, and envision alternatives that contribute to a livable and secure future for all children.
