AVDA (Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse) will co-host the Statewide Youth Activism Summit to help prevent domestic and dating violence, in conjunction with the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
The Youth Activism Summit, which had been held in Orlando for a number of years, will be held in Palm Beach County for the first time ever. This year’s keynote speaker is Byron Hurt, an award-winning documentary filmmaker, published writer, anti-sexist activist, and lecturer. He is also the former host of the Emmy-nominated television show, REEL WORKS with BYRON HURT.
In addition to a variety of presenters, there will be activities for young people to participate in throughout the day that will focus on preventing dating violence and building healthy relationships. The Summit will include workshops and performances, as well as lunch.
The event is FREE. Young people and adults are welcome. For more information, contact Emil Rudicell at Rudicell_Emil@FCADV.org or call 850.425.2749. Free registration online at: http://fcadv.org/events/youth-summit-2017-prevention-action.
