Equal Not Exploited.

About the 3rd Annual World Without Exploitation Youth Summit

How do we create a more equitable and exploitation-free world? We do it by coming together, which is what Equal Not Exploited - the third annual World Without Exploitation (WorldWE) Youth Summit - is all about. This year, WorldWE is taking its annual gathering of allies, activists and artists, ages 16 - 28, into a digital space, reaching a national audience. During our education and activism-focused summit you’ll hear from those impacted by exploitation … learn more about its root causes and consequences … and explore new and creative strategies for creating a world where no one is bought, sold or exploited. See you there!

Join us for two sessions: Wednesday, July 15 and Wednesday, July 22 from 4:30 - 6:30 pm eastern.

There is no cost to participate. Register below for Zoom link.
