SMU Youth Summit


The Embrey Human Rights Program welcomes one hundred high school students and educators to campus this weekend for the second annual Human Rights Youth Summit in partnership with the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth. June 23-24, Youth Summit attendees will explore strategies for effective advocacy and develop a human rights network through dynamic workshops, leadership training, and networking opportunities with Dallas community leaders and activists. The summit has expanded since last year’s one-day program to now include an overnight stay on the SMU campus and a second day of activities.
