The 2013 Young People's Peace and Justice Conference (YPPJ) is a two-day community-building conference with a purpose to harness youth dialogue, awareness, engagement, and skills building around social justice issues. The tagline of this year's conference is "Facing Violence and Finding Love," and we aim to encourage our community and its young people to deconstruct violence, analyze its role in our lives and world, and to develop practical and applicable ideas and strategies around embracing love and peace in the interest of social responsibility and justice. YPPJ will equip participants with concrete strategies, skills, and resources for engaging in social justice work in our communities and around the world.
