On Friday March 21st I attended the 20th annual Kitsap Youth Rally for Human Rights at Olympic College in Bremerton. I was once again amazed and encouraged by what our youth are able to accomplish.
The Rally is supported by Kitsap Safe Schools, the Kitsap County Council for Human Rights and the Olympic College Multicultural Services Center, and is primarily planned and achieved by youth.
Some of the 12 workshops the youth prepared and presented were:
Alternative Voices of Humanity’s Universal
Volunteering in the Community
Shattered Spirits: A Native Perspective
There were also break out sessions dealing with difficult topics like rape and identity, and a production by the North Kitsap High Theater Arts and GSA of PUSH: A Social Awareness Play.
Kudos to the hosting Bremerton School District and all the youth that participated!
