Berkeley, Wednesday April 28, 2010 – Over six hundred high school students from throughout the Bay Area will attend Eastbay nonprofit Youth Together’s 9th Annual Ethnic Studies Conference at UC Berkeley.  The theme, “Reclaiming Our Past, Fighting for Our Futures,” is a call for students to find strength in their histories as a tool to motivate them towards higher education.  Students will participate in presentations and performances centered on race, culture health, media literacy, student organizing and art activism.  With workshops from local educators, organizations, students, and artists, this year’s Ethnic Studies conference will continue Youth Together legacy in providing alternative education and spaces for youth to become active in social justice organizing.

The Ethnic Studies Conference has served over 6,500 students in its nine year history, making it a premier educational event for Bay Area high school students.  For many students in attendance, this will mark their first time visiting a college campus.  In a time where budget cuts have decreased the number of students of color on college campuses across the state of California, this conference marks an opportunity for youth to not only picture themselves attending college but also succeeding in higher education as they witness accomplished presenters and community leaders of their cultural background.  “Even though California is hurting financially to fund education, we and the community continue to find alternative ways to provide comprehensive education and motivation for our youth to succeed and grow,” says executive director Prishni Murillo.
