Centering Youth Voices in Human Rights Education and Advocacy9:00am
Monday, October 21st, 2019
09:00 AM - 03:00 PM
Storrs Campus Dodd Center Room 162With the approaching 30th anniversary of the landmark international Convention on the Rights of the Child, we invite educators and community leaders to join us for a day-long workshop focused on creating opportunities for youth leadership and voice in classrooms and community-based organizations. In recent years, young people all over the world have become more engaged in advocacy and activism on issues such as climate change, gun violence, and migrant and refugee rights. To support their efforts, schools and communities can partner to provide students with the knowledge, values, and skills necessary to create meaningful civic participation and engagement. This workshop will bring together classroom educators, community-based practitioners, and youth leaders to explore centering youth voices in human rights education and advocacy.

Storrs Campus J. Ray Ryan Bldg, Room 204Courtney D. Cogburn, Ph.D., Columbia University
Thursday October 24, 2019
Dr. Cogburn is interested in the ways we characterize and measure racism and the effects of racism on racial inequities in health. She has focused on cultural racism and effects of media-based racism on acute physiological, psychological, and behavioral stress responses as well as associations between chronic psychosocial stress exposure and Black/White disparities in cardiovascular health and disease. She is also developing a project using data science approaches to explore links between media-based racism and population health. In a recent project, she has started to explore the use of virtual reality as a tool for improving understanding and engagement of structural racism.
