YOUTH ARTS NEW YORK presents:
DISARM THE HATE! Youth and Gun Violence
A Workshop on Civic Engagement
In partnership with Gays Against Guns this day-long interactive workshop for 50 to 70 students in grades 9 to 12 will introduce youth to local resources and strategies that address the epidemic of gun violence through arts-based actions and to ways to advocate for gun laws that lead to safer communities. A morning plenary will present an overview of how gun violence affects our communities, personal testimony from a victim of gun violence, and creative strategies to confront it. In the afternoon students will meet in small groups to create strategies and actions to reduce the epidemic of gun violence. Presenters include Sonni Mun, M.D., Jay W. Walker, Virginia Vitzthum and Antonius Wiriadjaja. Students will be provided with a healthy morning snack and lunch.
