[ONLINE] - INSide Out: Youth-Led Policy in the Heartland


We believe in the power of youth-centered and youth-led policy design.

Youth America is a storytelling-for-action project between New America Indianapolis and VOICES (Indianapolis, IN), helping youth policy advocates safely share their stories and ideas to improve and reinvent the systems intended to serve and protect young people. Please join New America, VOICES, and a panel of youth policy fellows to talk about how and why they decided to try and communicate their lived experience to policymakers. How did it work? What did they learn? Did anything change?

Join the conversation online using #YouthAmerica and #INSideOut and following @mollygmartin.
