Over five days in October 1986, 32 young people from across the U.S. gathered in Washington, D.C., for AFSC’s Youth Taking Charge of the Future Conference. The participants were expected to “come with commitment to increase their ability to be leaders,” and “learn from their own experience and … from each other.”
“For a different sort of education”
David J. Snider, a social justice writer who authored the conference report, said:
