We are thrilled to introduce the new 2021 Editorial Advisors!
Our Cultures of Dignity Editorial Advisors review and provide feedback on all of our work. We heavily rely on young people’s experiences and insights to check our work – from lesson plans, to blogs, to presentations.
Young people are experts on what it means to live in this day and age but don’t always get to share their voice. At Cultures of Dignity, we get to listen to young people.
Get to know our newest editorial advisors below! The rest of the editorial advisor team can be viewed on our student voice page.
