NYRA’s Annual Meeting a Huge Success

Written by NYRA Aug 20, 2008

This month NYRA held its annual meeting at its offices in Washington,
DC, and it was by all measures a great success. This year’s meeting
had the biggest turnout ever, with an estimated 30 people in
attendance. Good times were had by all, with good food, amazing
people, and some great presentations and workshops.

The schedule was packed with empowering and informative speakers speakers from the ACLU, the Community Alliance for the Ethical Treatment of Youth (CAFETY), Youth Venture, Mobilize, and Students for a Democratic Society. Plus inspiring and thought provoking speeches & presentations by NYRA officers, staff and members Chip Sinton, Julian Gutierrez, Justin Graham, and Yonaton Yares. Plus the annual presentation of NYRA’s annual report and strategic discussion for the year ahead. The report details the tremendously successful year NYRA has had and looks ahead to the future.

Those who came to the meeting also had a youth rights cookout at our
fearless executive director’s house after Saturday’s conference.
Attendees had the opportunity to vote in this year’s annual election
in person, and were the first in the country to hear the results of
the election. Check out pictures from the event here. Thanks to everyone who came and participated for making this year’s annual meeting a great success, and the best yet.
