Seattle Speaks: Preventing Youth Violence
Youth violence is on the rise in Seattle. The city is responding with a community-based, multi-agency Youth Violence Prevention Initiative, the front lines of a fight that could mean life or death for kids aged 12-17. Over the next two years, the city will spend about $8 million to try to reduce youth violence, focusing on the youths who are at highest risk of perpetuating or being victimized by violence. But is it working? Is it realistic? And is it the best approach, and the best use of the money? Scheduled participants include Mariko Lockhart, director of the city initiative; a representative of the Seattle City Council; a representative of the Seattle Police Departments gang unit; a former gang member; and youth who have experienced violence firsthand. Broadcast live and online at the Seattle Channel, this 90 minute interactive forum will lay out the extent of Seattles youth-violence problem, offer updates on and analysis of the initiative, explore innovative anti-violence strategies, and share experience from other cities. How do you feel about this issue? CR Douglas will moderate the conversation "in the round" to offer you a chance to share your opinions and suggestions, and electronic polling during the event will gauge responses from both the live and online audiences. Presented by Town Hall, with City Club and the Seattle Channel.
