We're told we are the leaders of the future, but young people are ready to lead now. And we're ready to tell our stories. Our stories are powerful, and we can use them to make our elected officials listen to us. Our stories are important, and deserve to be heard. Our voices should be celebrated, and our experiences should be valued.
The Minnesota Youth Collective has been talking to young folks across the state to find out what issues are affecting us the most. Powerful Stories will be a chance to have a discussion around those issues and more, to learn how to use your story to advocate for issues you care about, and a space to tell your story to others.
