The year, National Week of Conversation hosted by U.S. Convo Project October 5 - 13. Our youth celebrated by launching their first podcast episode on Monday, October 8! The first episode of the “Youth Voices Amplified” podcast focuses on “Church and State.” Tune in to listen to our youth discuss the blurred lines between the two topics here, on Sound Cloud: https://m.soundcloud.com/thecepdc/podcast-episode-1-church-and.

The Community Enrichment Project hosted a "Super Leaders Read" reading circle at Capitol View Library in Washington, D.C. for ages 8-12. The reading circle was a safe space for young readers to read positive social justice stories, learn about community activism, and think about ways they too can be community leaders.
