The Richmond Peace Education Center will hold its 2016 Youth Peace Summit on Saturday April 30 at St. Paul’s Baptist Church–Southside Campus (700 E Belt Blvd. Richmond) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is free for teenagers (sixth grade and above) from metro-Richmond.


The theme for this year’s Youth Peace Summit–our eleventh–is Uniting Youth for a Just Richmond Region.   It’s an opportunity for teens from the city and surrounding counties to meet, get to know one another, share concerns, and discuss issues of social justice affecting our region.

Teens will be served lunch; after lunch there will also be a program of music, dance and youth spoken word performances.

The summit will feature a large “gathering” of all teen participants beginning at 10 a.m., followed by engaging 90-minute workshops for small groups.

After lunch, the Richmond Peace Education Center will recognize Jordan Chapman for her role in the successful campaign to Rename Byrd Middle School.
