    Search for the Self (Teen Café)
    Moderator: Robert Bittner
    Do you ever find yourself unable to see representations of your life or identity in literature, film, online media or other sources? Is the recent surge in dialogue about representation of people of colour, strong females and LGBT people important? And how can we work to make things better for future generations?
