Students from across the Los Angeles area will teach community members about a range of social justice issues at a June 1 conference that positions youth voice at the forefront of social change efforts.

Organized by a group of Roosevelt High School educators and students, the conference—East Side Stories: A Grassroots Vision for Education & Community—seeks to foster youth empowerment and community organizing. The conference will be held from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., at Roosevelt High School, 456 South Mathews Street, Los Angeles. Admission is free.

“We aim to include what is often absent in the conversation on public education, which is powerful, transformative student voice,” said conference organizer and Roosevelt teacher Eddie Lopez.
