Listen up and learn more about the Rob Ingram Youth Summit against Violence happening THIS Saturday, April 21st at 10 am:
This is a summit for youth by youth
We established the Youth Against Violence Committee (YAV) in response to the growing violence directed towards young people in the forms of gang, anti-gay and gender, bullying, and sexual violence. We are working with youth and adults throughout our community to change the way violence is viewed and dealt with. We are hosting the Rob Ingram Youth Summit Against Violence on April 21, 2012 at the Highland Christian Center (7600 NE Glisan Ave, Portland OR) from 10:00am -4:00pm (Breakfast and lunch will be provided.) This is the first summit of its kind in Multnomah County created by youth for youth.
FREE! ENTERTAINMENT! FOOD! PRIZES! T-SHIRTS! BUS TIX!
The first part of the summit is for youth only to caucus, build community, and consider youth driven policy recommendations. Invited elected officials and community leaders are welcomebetween 2:15 and 3:45pm to listen to youth’s stories of violence and engage young people in dialogue around how youth and adults can take steps to reduce violence in the community.
IF you are a YOUNG PERSON (NOT ADULT) and interested please
