On Thursday, March 1, “Let the Youth Lead – An Open Forum for Youth Voices” will be held for youth from across Cape Ann. The forum is scheduled to begin at 6:30 PM and will meet in the Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church’s Community Room. The accessible entrance is at 10 Church Street.
The goal is to provide a space where young people can meet and share their thoughts, feelings, questions and ideas regarding the recent wave of youth leadership and action happening across the country.
Participants will be encouraged to explore how they can effectively increase youth agency locally and beyond, in the short term and the long term.
The current conversation about gun laws and school safety is certainly one of the biggest topics right now, but the forum will not be limited to that subject.
Should interest arise in the upcoming March 24 March for Our Lives events – locally, in Boston or in DC – a breakout group will form to develop options to support participation.
The forum will be facilitated by Rose Sheehan, Gloucester Unitarian Universalist’s Education and Community Engagement Leader. Refreshments will be served.
Questions may be directed to Rose Sheehan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
