This Saturday. 2-4pm Unity Rally i
"Our future together
As schools start this week we hope that every teacher holds the space for youth to discuss, express, explore, and struggle with the tragedy in Ferguson and how it is connected to larger conversations about criminal justice and social justice. That space to express is EVERYTHING, especially when what is expressed comes out in the form of confusion, fear, sadness, anger, frustration and uncertainly. Everyone expresses differently so writing and art may be necessary.
Our meetings this week, Tuesday and Thursday nights, will hold the space so that youth can give voice to what is present and heavy for them. Conversations will continue after this week as they should.
7pm Tuesday in St. Charles at Youth in Need.
7pm Thursday in St. Louis at Trinity Episcopal Church.
