At the 21st Annual ICM Prayer Celebration for Children, we’re having an Interfaith and Intergenerational Conversation. Heartfelt conversations are critical and necessary to propel our youth, our cherished legacy forward. Youth voices will be at the forefront as they have panel discussions with interfaith and advocacy speakers. We’ve got a GREAT line-up of guest speakers, including:
ICM is honored to have Andrew Young, one of Atlanta’s heroes, engage the youth of the ICM Youth Social Justice Academy in a heartfelt conversation about what it takes to be an activist. Mr. Young began his career as a pastor and became an early leader in the civil rights movement. He was a close confidant to Martin Luther King Jr. and was executive director of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). Later he became active in politics, serving as a U.S. Congressman from Georgia, United States Ambassador to the United Nations in the Carter Administration, and 55th Mayor of Atlanta. The youth are excited to exchange thoughts and ideas with such an icon as Andrew Young.
Rabbi Lydia Medwin:
Rabbi Lydia Medwin is the assistant rabbi at The Temple. She was ordained just 11 years ago, and she’s already made an impact on the world. At The Temple, Rabbi Medwin leads the Rothschild Social Justice Institute. Her job is to involve The Temple’s 1500 families in raising their voices for justice in our society. Rabbi Medwin loves to make sure the Jewish youth work actively with adults in these justice projects. Her vibrant spirit and great sense of humor will ensure an active back and forth conversation with her youthful conversation partners.
Sucheta Kamath immigrated to Atlanta from India as a young adult. In college, she got interested in what it takes to be a good learner. Now she’s a well-known speech–language pathologist. Ms Kamath says, “Learning how to learn is critical for school-aged children and remains one of the most reliable predictors of success beyond the formal years of learning.” Ms. Kamath founded ExQ®, a successful online learning program for middle and high school students that empowers them to develop self-awareness and strategic thinking skills. She’s looking forward to a lively conversation with ICM Social Justice Academy youth.
Plus there will be a live Q&A, amazing youth performances, and we’ll present the 2nd Annual Marian Wright Edelman Award.
