Indy teens to go to youth summit on gun violence in Costa Rica, learn from Nobel Peace Prize laureates
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – They marched, they chanted and they pushed for peace after the murder of two of their Warren Central High School classmates. Now teens from We LIVE Inc. are set to take their message to Costa Rica and learn from Nobel Peace Prize laureates.
Seventeen teenagers from across the country are headed to Costa Rica for a youth summit on gun violence featuring Nobel Peace Prize winners.
The PeaceJam Foundation works to help Nobel Peace Prize winners mentor youth. Next month, the teens will learn from Nobel Peace Prize winner Jody Williams and Nobel Peace Prize winner and the former president of Costa Rica, Oscar Arias. They will stay at Arias’ home and visit the University of Peace.
The summit includes survivors of mass shootings from Parkland, Columbine and Pulse nightclub.
