Calling all youth between the ages of 13 to 18 years old! The U.S. Attorney’s Office East of the River Community Prosecution Team want YOU to participate in an interactive youth summit entitled “Breaking the Silence on Youth Violence”. The goal of this summit is to “deal with the real” and address the senseless violence surrounding our youth. We recognize that a youth’s exposure to violence, whether as victims or witnesses, is often associated with long-term physical, psychological, and emotional harm. Children exposed to violence are also at a higher risk of engaging in criminal behavior later in life and becoming part of a cycle of violence. We want to educate youth on how they can become part of the solution and help create safer neighborhoods by “breaking the silence on youth violence.”
