On December 15th, RSEKN partnered with Hillcrest High School to support and sponsor the organization of a Students4Students Black Youth Conference this upcoming spring 2018! RSEKN Co-director Nicholas Ng-A-Fook and Network Coordinator Noor El-Husseini were grateful for the talking circle that took place, listening to student voices from Hillcrest Black History Club, Ridgemont High School, Gloucester High School, Lisgar Collegiate Institute, Sir Robert Borden High School & Sir Wilfrid Laurier Secondary School express ideas, feelings and reflections on what social justice is, visible and invisible markers of difference and what we all envision the student-led event to be!
