Over 1,000 Students to Attend Conference Focusing on Respect, Tolerance and Unity

DENVER, Jan. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — More than 1,000 teenagers from over 90 Colorado high schools and youth organizations will gather on February 5, 2011, to celebrate diversity and to strategize on developing a safe and welcoming learning environment across the state’s high schools and communities.
“In the wake of a series of gay teenage suicides, a tense political environment, reality television featuring teenage pregnancy, and religious intolerance, this year’s conference fulfills a great need for discussion on respect, tolerance and unity,” said Janet Sammons, Co-Director. “This conference provides students and teachers with the necessary skills to discuss diversity and implement action plans to make their schools a more welcoming environment.”
