Changing Activism: How Gen Z Is Taking Action

Mar 9, 2023

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

As leaders in the Junior State of America, a fully student-run organization, this session’s student speakers have a unique vantage point into the front lines of youth advocacy nationwide— an advocacy different from generations prior. Armed with the power of new technologies like social media, youth advocates have created powerful networks of like-minded people. JSAers facilitate a powerful form of discourse that drives the creation of passionate activists, which this panel seeks to elucidate.
