3rd Annual A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE Youth Congress

The Anti-Defamation League's A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE Institute will be holding its 3rd Annual A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE Youth Congress on Wednesday, May 22, 1996 at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. The Youth Congress will run from 7:45 am until 2:00 pm.

This one-day series of workshops is designed to provide students and teachers with substantive information on how to end prejudice and promote diversity. Incidents and violence resulting from all forms of discrimination including racism, anti-Semitism, ethnic prejudice, homophobia, and sexism continue to be on the rise among young people. Through the Youth Congress, the A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE Institute continues to expand and solidify the network of student human rights activists who are addressing these issues in schools across Massachusetts.

All public and private middle and high schools are invited to send a "team" of five representatives (4 students and 1 faculty advisor). Schools are able to send more than one "team" of five on a space available basis. Students who participate should be in the seventh through eleventh grades. Since 1994, over 20,000 students from Massachusetts have participated in the A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE Youth Congress and Team Harmony events.

All teams must be registered no later than Friday, May 10, 1996. If you have any questions, or would like registration information, please call 617-536-6033. Thank you.
