Kicking off 60 days of engagement around the intersections between youth, gender and peace, USIP will speak with Vweta Chadwick (@SheroVweta ) - a human rights champion with over 10 years' experience working to advance the rights of women and girls. She is the programs director of Project ASHA, an NGO advancing the rights of women and girls in underserved communities across Africa. She, equally, doubles as the secretary of Carrington Youth Fellowship Alumni Network. She is also a Generation Change Fellow and a YALI Fellow.

The 60 days of engagement - #YouthPeaceEquality - are bringing awareness and education to three international days of celebration: August 12th is International Youth Day; September 21st is International Peace Day; and October 11th is International Day of the Girl Child.
