YES! Youth Forum: Youth Voice For JUSTICE  on Sunday, October 15th, 2017, 3:00 - 5:00 p.m.

e-CAMP MENTORing in collaboration with the Ontario Alliance of Black School Educators (ONABSE) along with our youth leaders Cristal Hines and Deijaumar Clarke are sponsoring a forum covering Youth Voice on JUSTICE. This is an initiative by youth for youth and an opportunity for them, especially those who are racialized and underrepresented to articulate their thinking on justice issues that impact them directly, many of the times negatively. The expected audience include:

Justice System Professionals 
Legal Professionals 
Police Services 
Policy Advisors 

A current issue is around police relationship and treatment of Black youth.  The Defonte Miller (http://www.cbc.ca/news/opinion/dafonte-miller-case-1.4243956) case is a salient one but currently before the courts so much cannot be said about it in particular, however there are some general principles  that can be addressed. There are two parts to the youth panel: 
  1.  Understanding and dissecting the issues surrounding youth justice, and 
  2. Finding solutions from a youth perspective. 
This is one of a series of YES (Youth Everywhere Speak) forums. More to come - Youth Voice on EMPLOYMENT; Youth Voice on RELATIONSHIPS; Youth Voice on EDUCATION. The principle behind these fora, is that too often we speak for our youth, we need to provide a safe space to mentor them so that they have a voice to advocate for themselves.

Please extend this invitation to your networks far and wide.
