Youth Voices Present: A Youth-Led Mayoral Forum

  • First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Come out to hear mayoral candidates share their vision for the future of New Orleans: the young people! The forum will focus on issues that are important to youth today, including criminal justice reform, education, and quality transportation. The event is organized and will be led by members of the Youth Voices Council, a group of diverse young leaders who share a common goal of alleviating injustices within Louisiana’s juvenile justice system. The Council is supported by the Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights.

Let’s pack the house with young New Orleanians and the voters who prioritize their needs!

Interested in collaborating?
If you’re a youth-serving organization or educator, contact Grace Franklin at (504) 451-7235.
