The U.S. YPS Coalition is launching the #Yes4YPS webinar series to commemorate the five-year anniversary of UNSCR 2250 on Youth, Peace and Security, raise awareness of the YPS movement, and highlight prominent voices and topics in YPS.

Please join us for the first event of the series on August 12, International Youth Day from 11:30 am - 12:30 pm EST. This event will feature a conversation to socialize the YPS agenda, explore how youth are programmatically contributing to peacebuilding, and discuss the key ingredients for government support of YPS.

Moderated by Saji Prelis, this panel will bring in three prominent youth activists to discuss their work and highlight the importance of YPS, including: Vahe Mirikian, Peacebuilding Policy Officer at Peace Direct; Saumya Aggrawal, CEO and Co-Founder of Youth for Peace International; and Kessy Ekomo Soignet, Founder and Executive Director of URU.

On September 2, 2020, leading scholars and activists will discuss the additional challenges and risks Romani people are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic during a webinar, “Anti-Romani Racism During COVID-19 Pandemic.”

This event is the second in the four-part webinar series, “Romani People During Pandemics.” The webinar series aims to:

  • Discuss past and present patterns of fearing or blaming Roma during pandemics and place these patterns in the broader history of scapegoating in times of crisis.
  • Draw attention to various responses chosen by state representatives and their rationale. We will discuss discriminatory measures by local or state institutions who imposed Roma-only, disproportionate, or militarized measures in Romani neighborhoods or towns.
  • Focus on effective responses implemented at local, national, or international levels by state and non-state actors to protect Romani people, their health and well-being in times of pandemic and outside of them.

This webinar series is being organized by the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University, the Romani Studies Program of the Central European University, the Romanian Institute for Research on National Minorities (ISPMN), and Cornell University.
