Focus: Education

As youth, we were let down not only by people in office in Baltimore City but also by the news media who were covering topics about youth. As youth each day, we get up and try again with all the odds against us, to strive for greatness when everything around us is crumbling. We are continually being let down by those who say they support us.

Out of our frustration and disappointment, we came up with an idea of hosting ouw own Youth Town Hall (led, created, and organized by the members of the YAB) to allow youth to interview all of Baltimore City’s Mayoral Candidates for the 2020 election.

The purpose of the Youth Town Hall meeting is to provide a space for Baltimore City Mayoral Candidates to be engaged in conversation with some of Baltimore’s youth about the city’s most pressing issues. The topics of this Youth Town Hall will include Gun Violence in Baltimore City, Food Insecurity, Education and Career/Economic Opportunities for youth in Baltimore city.

Most of the decisions made in Baltimore City about youth are decided without youth voice. Since most people do not want to give us a seat, we made our own table.
