With a resurgence of youth movements responding to social injustices and instances of social inequity; it is important that we listen to, engage with, and equip young people with the tools to navigate complex ideas.
During this series, youth (grades 9 to 12) will engage with contemporary social justice issues. Participants will have the opportunity to submit a piece of writing on a social justice theme of their choice with a chance to appear in a SEDA published booklet. Through consultation with SEDA, students will be allowed to use a pen name.
