The ThisGen Youth Summit was held in Washington DC on March 6 – 10, 2017
ThisGEN is strongly dedicated to working towards a better future for all – regardless of one’s ethnicity, race, gender, sex, sexuality, documentation status, class, age, or ability.
ThisGEN hopes to create new systems of social equity that acknowledge historic oppressions and seek out creative & collaborative solutions.
The liberation ThisGEN wants is deeply rooted in love and compassion for one another. The revolution wanted is non-violent and intersectional.
Each one of us is capable of becoming part of this revolution, and it will take everyone to make the future ThisGEN seeks a reality.
Together, we will end gender-based violence in one generation.
ThisGEN: Youth Summit brought together a community of diverse activists whose stories have been marginalized, in order to elevate the visibility of these stories in movement-making. Participants pulled from their lived experiences and learnings from the event to create CALLS TO ACTION that specify how we can eradicate gender-based violence.
