Youth producers Luna Olavarria Gallegos and Haarika Reddy and their peers Kaelen Goodluck, Annie Phan and Kale Brown, sit down to discuss their experiences and reflections from the 2011 Student Diversity Leadership Conference. SDLC is a national, gathering of multi racial, multicultural youth leaders. The mission of this conference is to help students self-reflect, form allies, and build community.

This year, fifteen hundred students from independent schools across the country convened in Philadelphia to participate in interactive workshops geared towards helping them understand themselves and bring change to their communities. They have all worked very hard to raise awareness about the importance of acceptance of diversity in their own schools and in the greater Albuquerque area. These youth drop some serious knowledge- you won’t want to miss it!
