“Education Over Incarceration” Youth Town Hall Meeting
Education Over Incarceration Youth Town Hall meeting The Philadelphia Student Union, Youth United for Change and the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus would like to invite you to attend the Education Over Incarceration Youth Town Hall meeting. The meeting will take place on Thursday, November 17, 2011 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at West Philadelphia High School. At this event we will take a closer look at interpersonal and structural violence in our school system and our communities. The goal of the town hall is to hear directly from young people and engage the community on conditions facing youth and policies in schools and communities that create a pipeline from the school-house to the jail house. Identifying and understanding this process is critical to fighting it. The youth town hall will bring together city, state, and school district officials with young people and parents to end youth violence and the criminalization of Philadelphia’s youth. “Education Over Incarceration” Youth Town Hall Meeting DATE: November 17, 2011 TIME: 5:00 PM- 7:00 PM LOCATION: West Philadelphia High School 4901 Chestnut St. Philadelphia, PA 19139 We look forward to seeing you on November 17th.
