This public forum featured a collection of authentic, diverse youth voices speaking to, and about, teen dating and sexual violence. An audience and panel of teens, field professionals, and local community members explored the interconnectedness of violence and such issues as domestic- and gang violence, and bullying. By highlighting issues facing youth today, this discussion aimed to spark thoughtful exchange that begins with teens’ own voices. This program was presented in partnership with Peace Over Violence and in cooperation with LACE’s presentation of Suzanne Lacy’s Three Weeks in January as part of Pacific Standard Time Performance and Public Art Festival.
