#SayHerMagicMatters Youth Summit @ Columbia’s Beyond the Bars Conference

February 19, 2019 @ February 19, 2019 - February 19, 2019

S.O.U.L. Sisters is proud to invite girls, femmes, and gender non-binary teens to the first-ever youth summit hosted by the Beyond the Bars Conference at Columbia University. Beyond the Bars is an annual justice conference hosted by the Center for Justice at Columbia University. This year’s programming theme “Until She’s Free” will focus on both the incarceration and criminalization of women and girls themselves as well as of their families and communities.

This year, S.O.U.L. Sisters is partnering with Beyond the Bars to produce a one-day youth-led summit on Saturday, March 8th from 10 AM – 5 PM at the School of Social Work at Columbia University. Programming for the summit will include small group story sharing, workshops on the pipelines to prison, and a variety of arts-based community building activities. We strongly encourage Black and Brown girls and femmes between the ages of 13 – 18 who have been impacted by mass incarceration and/or are interested in youth activism to attend. Peer and adult allies are also welcome to join!

SPACE IS LIMITED! If you are interested in bringing your youth, please fill out our registration form at www.tinyurl.com/SayHerMagicMatters2019. For questions or concerns, please contact NYC Program Manager Jamy Drapeza at jamy@soulsistersleadership.org.
