Youth Action Project: JUSTICE
DATE: Beginning September 15th 2016
This four month project will bring together young people interested in learning about human rights, policing and community-police relationships in Edmonton through applied learning and dialogue.
This is an opportunity for young Edmontonians to hear from community and police experts while contributing to policy recommendations and critical solutions that focus on justice and dignity.
Youth will meet weekly with local service agencies, hear fromexperts with lived experience, and discuss issues related to policing through a human rights lens. As part of the program, they will gain skills in research and policy development as they build a document to address police-youth interactions in our city.
Youth of all backgrounds, abilities, languages, orientations… well you get the picture… are welcome. We will work to make this an inclusive space for you!
DEADLINE TO REGISTER: Friday, September 10th.
FYI: We define youth loosely - 16 to 28 years of age.
