Human Rights and Genocide Summit
Human Rights and Genocide Summit, a Teen Issue Summit
June 26 - 28, 2011 in Washington, DC
On June 26-28, 2011, teens from across the United States are invited to Washington, DC, to take part in an extraordinary experience – a Jewish Teen Summit on Human Rights and Genocide.
At the Summit we'll explore:
- What is Genocide?
- Where are Human Rights being challenged?
- What's the Jewish response to genocide?
- What can I do?
For three days in the nation's capital, a diverse group of Jewish teens will come together to learn about genocide and how they can stand up and speak out against these worldwide atrocities. They will hear from activists, meet with their Members of Congress, and most importantly, they will walk away from this Teen Issue Summit with increased knowledge about human rights and genocide, enhanced skills as a community leader, and a greater understanding of their own civic responsibility.

“For the first time in my life, I was able to blend my Jewish values with my passion for service. Panim el Panim taught me a lot about what it means to be Jewish in today’s world.” - Adam Bradlow
