Teen Empowerment cordially invites you to Boston’s 21st Annual Youth Peace
Conference: True Stories for One Glory coming to the Strand Theatre
Saturday, May 11, 2013, 6:00-9:30 pm.

It will be one of Boston’s hottest productions featuring many of the city’s
most talented young adults presenting an original theatre presentation with
music, dance, spoken word, and young people speaking from their hearts
about their lives and their hopes for a better Boston. Come see and hear
their true stories of Boston’s communities.

In addition, immediately following the performance, we are inviting the
audience to participate in an interactive dialogue with Boston’s Mayoral
Candidates about the future we all want for our city.

To make this a great evening transformational for our community and the
lives of young people, we need your help to reach out to youth and adults
to attend and participate in this powerful event.

Event Schedule:

6:00pm -7:15pm:  Registration, Reception and Ice Cream Social

The Conference will begin with an exhibit of local community organizations,
artists and vendors tabling and free ice cream provided by JP Licks.

7:30pm - 9:00pm:  The Play “True Stories for One Glory”

The conference will move into the theatre for a dynamic performance
featuring an original play interspersed with music, dance, speeches, raps,
and spoken word. This year’s story will deal with community issues and
provides a hopeful vision of a better future where youth take their
rightful place as full partners in community life.

 9:00pm – 9:30pm:  Speak-Out and Healing Ceremony with Mayoral Candidates

The Mayoral Candidates and the community will have an opportunity to speak
on what needs to be done to help heal the community and what they
themselves are willing to do to bring this healing process about.
