development, civic engagement, media production and narrative shift. GJ’s mission is to inspire youth to become multidimensional leaders who are committed to social transformation. In New Mexico, GJ has been recognized as the premier youth media and leadership group, and locally and nationally, has been the recipient of numerous awards. In this year's Facing Race conference, Generation Justice Executive Producer, Roberta Rael and Associate Producer, Barbara Ramirez, will attend in person to conduct in person interviews and record audio for GJ's radio production which broadcasts every Sunday at 7pm on 89.8 KUNM-FM. GJ will conduct interviews of presenters and attendees on a number of racial justice issues. However, we will also ask interviewees their thoughts about the current moment we are in and what the role is of young people as we organize and strategize for a future that is based in liberation and justice. GJ will also provide information on our mission and training that we share with youth across NM. This includes our 2022 Leaders for Change Fellowship summer program, which was co-facilitated by Roberta and Barbara and provided 61 training sessions to 28 Fellows ages 13-25. The Fellowship also resulted in a vaccine equity social media campaign that the Fellows curated.
