The Andrew Goodman Foundation Hosts its 2019 National Civic Leadership Training Summit
The Andrew Goodman Foundation hosted its 2019 National Civic Leadership Training Summit from June 19 - 23 at Montclair State University for student leaders from their 59 partner universities and colleges. The Summit focused on teaching the students how to increase civic engagement and participation on their campuses.
This year’s Summit was even more significant because it honored the 55th anniversary of the murders by the KKK of Andrew Goodman, James Chaney, and Michael Schwerner, volunteers registering African-Americans to vote in Mississippi. The workshops focused on bringing polling sites to campuses, building intersectional movements, and more.
