Truth to Tell: Community Youth in Peace and Service

Truth to Tell celebrates Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Naomi, who come to town to talk peace and service to Twin Cities young people; TTT will spotlight two organizations working to empower young people in the tradition of Nobel Laureates like Tutu. One, known as youthrive – a nonprofit organization that provides young people with leadership and service learning opportunities – is a co-sponsor of this year’s PeaceJam, held at Metropolitan State University the following weekend. The other is Yo, the Movement. Truth to Tell’s Andy Driscoll and Lynell Mickelsen will talk community with three or four young activists and their mentor – plus Political Science guru, Tom O'Connell.

GUESTS:

TRACINA COWARD, youthrive representative and a youth co-chair for the North Minneapolis Service Project

DAVE ELLIS, adult co-chair for the North Minneapolis Service Project and Program Manager for the United Way Nurturing Children and Families Program

ALICIA, Yo, the Movement
