August 18th – 1:00 – 1:30 PM
Hasan Davis will share his journey through education, justice, and social service systems. Systems that, more often than not, failed to provide him the support he needed to be successful.
Hasan was lucky to find that on his journey there were, within each system, outliers and resisters who found a way to engage, encourage and empower him with skills, grit, and resilience. With their support, he transcended his mounting list of “failures” to become an advocate for himself and eventually a champion for others facing difficulty. Hasan believes that each person in the community has the opportunity, and the responsibility, to influence and change the way youth encounter the education, justice, and social service systems.
Hasan will share the simple strategies his personal champions employed to help him complete the “JD shuffle” and go from Hasan Davis Juvenile Delinquent to Hasan Davis Juris Doctor.
