Event description

Description

Millions of middle school children suffer every day from feeling left out or socially isolated simply because they are seen as different for whatever reasons. Whether you are a kid or an adult, the pain of this memory really hurts and can last a long time. Middle school doesn’t have to be that way. We are all different in one way or another and deserve to be accepted, valued and included for just who we are!

Beyond Differences created the #WhatsMyDifferent campaign, which is a diverse collection of past and present stories from real people courageously sharing their unique differences and the often painful experience of middle school. Each story ends by challenging viewers with the simple question, “Will you look beyond my different?"

Teen Board members from Beyond Differences stepped up to share their own #WhatsMyDifferent stories and are now taking it to the streets in the form of a student march. We are calling anyone who supports youth talking about and going beyond differences to join us.

PLEASE CLICK "TICKETS" TO REGISTER. THE EVENT IS FREE.

We will be providing bus transportation for as many youth and adults as possible. We have a $25/seat suggested donation to help cover the cost of the bus. We will be offering one pick up and drop off location from the North Bay to the East Bay. You can also sponsor seats for others if you cannot attend yourself.

Please stay tuned for more information as we get closer to the event.
