Herndon-Reston Indivisible to Host a Youth Forum

On July 17, The Education Committee of Herndon-Reston Indivisible (HRI) will host a Youth Forum where young activists will share their stories/experiences on current issues impacting their lives. These young millennials, recognized for their community involvement, will discuss how to tackle key issues facing younger generations. The 6:30 p.m. meeting will be held at the Sunset Hills Montessori School, 11180 Ridge Heights Road, Reston.

Following their presentations, there will be a round-table discussion by the speakers, and an intergenerational exchange with the audience about the issues raised. The meeting is open to all local residents, elected leaders and the media.

Paul Walsh, leader of the Education Committee, said, “we are excited to host this timely discussion and we invite the entire community to attend.” For more information, email HRI4Education@gmail.com.
