A week after the shootings of African Americans in Minnesota and Louisiana, young adults from 11 different colleges and universities met in July 2016 on ABC’s campus to discuss together ways to equip persons of color to fight for Social Justice throughout the United States. Proving ABC once again an incubator for student activism, students from Fresno Pacific College, Texas Southern University, American Baptist College, Fisk University, Clark Atlanta University, Atlanta Metro State College, Meharry Medical College, Georgia State University, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, Prairie View A&M University, & Virginia Union University spoke adamantly about their role in shaping the world in which they want to live.

The Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference’s Generation Now Network (GenNowNet) is committed to working with youth in neighborhoods and in educational environments along with young adult clergy and lay and community-based organizations. The purpose of the GenNowNet is to grow a national social justice awareness and action movement that is grounded in faith-driven advocacy, activism, and technology beyond the “church.” The organization seeks to infuse human and social rights awareness methodologies into the learning contexts and lives of these future leaders.
