Spring into Love Healthy Teen Summit @ CALIFORNIA ENDOWMENT



Dakar Media Academy attended the Spring Into Love HealthyTeen Summit.  A creative collaboration between YAC, East Los Angeles Women’s Center, Planned Parenthood Los Angeles Peer Advocates, UMMA Fremont, Women’s Leadership Program, Media Done Responsibly, YouTHink and California Latinas for Reproductive Justice!

The event featured  Art and Media Making, prizes and great health education workshops led by the student activist, and organizations that encourage youth leadership.

The event was hosted by the California Endowment, and took over a large part of the campus, with a presentation that brought all of the participants together, and multiple breakout rooms.

Some of the themes we heard were”For the women who’ve been kidnapped, abused, or killed due to gender-based violence: they spoke to honor them.”
