The One Love Symposium aims to engage youth, representatives from the arts, and working professionals in a public scholarship event to consider what it is we all have in common. What are our universal human values? At the end of the symposium we will consider what our contributors have taught us about the most important aspects of being human, from their unique perspectives. This project aims to provide a collaborative vehicle for social change lifting up and uniting voices of Youth, Artists, and Working Professionals.
This knowledge will be used to inform a professional learning curriculum that we believe can be used to improve the quality of teachers, healthcare professionals, and police. This 21st Century worker would be known as the Human Services Professional.
A final summary of the learnings of the One Love Symposium will be formally submitted to the Governor’s office of the State of Michigan to lobby for state sponsorship of a Human Services Professional Conference where Michigan can lead in the reframing and rebuilding of these essential professions with a renewed focus on equitable treatment for all.
