Congrats to the STARS CGI Fellows (youth representatives for each of the ten partner organizations from STARS CGI) for hosting an empowering Town Hall on #schoolsafety. For the past two months, these Fellows met on a weekly basis to brainstorm, research and discuss issues pertaining to gun control, overcrowding in schools and public transportation safety. We are so proud of them and applaud the squad for their advocacy, tenacity and leadership.
Immense gratitude to District Leader Kenésha Traynham-Cooper, District Leader Shaquana Boykins and District Leader Sarana Purcell for serving as panelists. They were powerful speakers who acknowledged youth voices and encouraged them to continue their advocacy work—leadership we absolutely need!
Congratulations to each of our AMAZING Fellows: Angelina, Madina, Emmy, Benedicta, Catalina, Danella, Ashley, Shaniela, Halima, Mayra, Yehowa-Nikee.
