The world has shifted.
Youth are leaders.
The pandemic has forced youth to take the initiative, to learn new skills, becoming activist during the pandemic.
Unfortunately, our community is mourning the loss of two young people.
The killing of a 3 year old in broad daylight is tragic.
Children deserve to be outside and feel safe, especially during the day.
Our community is outraged with good reason but we need to keep advocating for our youth and their safety.
Youth are traumatized all over the country.
We MUST make sure this never happens again.
As we live in masks, social distancing and being kind on purpose we must keep youth engaged.
Youth Matter in all communities and their voices must be heard.
Let Youth Speak.
Support Youth Ideas.
Let Youth Lead.
Youth are The Future.
Youth will always Matter.
