Dallas ISD is moving towards a progressive model of Racial, Socio-Economic and Educational Equity. In this effort, student voices are a valuable and necessary component toward the next steps of engagement.
The Dallas ISD Racial Equity Office in collaboration with the City of Dallas and the MLK Celebration Planning Committee encourages students in grades 9–12 to participate in this powerful opportunity. The theme for the 2019 MLK Youth Summit is “Reconciliation: Moving the Dream Forward”
The Youth Summit is a one-day interactive equity forum for high school students to engage with other students while addressing the challenges faced within their local communities. Students will explore the history of Dallas’ Civil Rights Movement, social engagement, and social and racial equity within the City of Dallas.
The Youth Summit will be held on Saturday, Jan. 12 from 10 a.m.–2 p.m. at IDEA High School, 4800 Ross Ave. Lunch will be provided. Registration is free but students must go here to register to attend.
