Since the beginning of this year there have been a number of violent incidents that have taken place in our community. Although several forums have taken place to discuss this issue, we do not feel there has been a significant presence of youth voices and/or perspectives at these forums to talk about the impact of violence on us and what we can do to be a part of the solution.

Please join us on as our SE Network YOUTH ACTION TEAM Hosts…
