#AreYouMadorNah Youth Summit Puts Youth Voices at the Center

Hosted by Bloom Project Inc., Circle Up Indy, and Edna Martin Christian Center

In light of recent national and local events surrounding community and police relationships, racial profiling, excessive use of force, and lack of cultural competency, there has been a lack of youth representation in this discussion. Bloom Project, Inc., Circle Up Indy, and Edna Martin Christian Center presents the #AreYouMadorNah Youth Summit to give young people the platform and opportunity to express their frustrations in a structured dialogue with members of IMPD, community members, and peers. The desired outcomes of this summit would be action steps to rebuild the relationship between the youth population and the police department and to continue dialogue within the youth community on peer education and understanding their rights.

This summit will be an interactive event, with members of the panel engaging with members of the audience and responding to questions from a moderator. The panel will consist of 6 youth males from various schools and organizations and 4 adults from the community.
