Lead On! For Peace and Equality in Alaska

Lead On represents a group of youth and adults from across Alaska who are committed to solving the puzzle of violence in our state. A goal is to shift norms around respect, and sexual and teen dating violence. A three-day summit includes national speakers, Alaska youth speakers, and Alaskan adults who provide inspiration, tools, and opportunities for youth to promote respect. Teens also plan for projects in their home community.
