Culture Jam is an annual student-led and produced conference focused on diversity. It is designed to empower students to have courageous conversations alongside their peers. Culture Jam offers a safe, inclusive space for high school students to discuss equity-related issues that are present in schools, the Pittsburgh region, and the global community.

The theme of Culture Jam 2018 is Allies in Action. An ally is a person or group that provides assistance and support in an ongoing effort. An ally in action is someone who not only advocates for others but is willing to take action in order to do so. This year’s Culture Jam theme will teach others how to be an ally as well as how to take action and show their passion for change.
