Detroit –
KICK and the National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) are partnering to empower and prepare our youth leaders by providing an opportunity for them to meet with other like-minded youth, political and civil rights leaders in Washington D.C. at this year’s Out On The Hill, Sept. 19-22.
NBJC is picking up the conference expenses, but are still in need of contributions to cover the travel expenses for five youth leaders.
KICK and NBJC anticipate the cost for all five youth leaders to be $3000 for the entire conference. Staff from KICK will be traveling with the young people and Curtis Lipscomb, Executive Director of KICK, will serve as co-moderator at this year’s summit.
KICK hopes members of the community will consider supporting this exciting opportunity and will handle all travel arrangments. Checks are payable to KICK and can be mailed to KICK, 41 Burroughs St., Suite 109, Detroit, MI 48202.
For more information call 313-993-8423.
