On June 3, 2021, Breanna and Brooke Bennett, 13-year-old founders of Women in Training, Inc., gave the keynote address at the Third Annual Youth Summit NYC.
“Students and Educators for Equity (SEE) and Youth Restorative Justice (YRJ) aim to bring together a collective of student voices to highlight the effects of disproportionality on students, while providing best practices to address and dismantle disproportionality,” the organizers stated. “Through a youth-led summit, we will elevate student perspectives in an effort to foster inclusive, humanizing, and critical learning environments for all members of our school communities.”
Breanna and Brooke summarized their address exclaiming, "This is a new day and Girls' Lives Matter!"
