Youth leaders from St. Louis; New Orleans; Greensboro, N.C.: Washington, D.C.; and Logan, W.Va., were hosted by the D.C. Peace and Economic Justice Program for a weeklong Human Rights Summit in Washington in June 2013.

Together the youth explored the U.N. Declaration on Human Rights, conducted research on a human rights issue in their respective community, and helped one another prepare for meetings with their Congressional representatives on Capitol Hill.
