We the Future – Community Celebration

Free

Celebrate the opening of our newest exhibition, We the Future: Young Leaders of Social Change with performances, poetry, art, and activism. Featuring a special performance by Xiuhtezcatl, a climate justice advocate and hip-hop artist who is included in the exhibit, as well as local youth musicians, poets, and artists. Connect with community partners and find how to turn your inspiration into action.

We the Future showcases the stories of ten young leaders working to build an equitable and inclusive world through their respective social change movements. Inspired by Amplifier’s We the Future education campaign and co-curated with the Gates Foundation Discovery Center’s Youth Ambassador Program, the exhibition celebrates youth leadership and action across a range of social justice issues such as climate justice, criminal justice reform, voting rights, immigration rights, disability justice, gun reform, queer rights, and literacy.
