Alder Harrington-McKinney’s Updates

Including Teens In Solution Driven Conversations.

February 20, 2017 9:24 AM

 

Neighbors:

I share this message that was sent to All Alders. A consistent theme at many of the neighbors' doors this weekend in our community was the concern over public safety. I am encouraged to receive the email from AJ. He is absolutely right, we need to ensure that teens who are doing positive things in and for the community are invited to the table as solutions are duscussed. Thank you AJ for reminding us that there are youth in our communities who are as committed as adults in building a safe; vibrant  community that is a great place to live, work and play for all of us.

Message:
My name is AJ Carr, & I am 14 years old. I work very hard in the community everyday to inspire my generation. I have some serious concerns about the violence in Madison. I understand that a group of community leaders have a 15 point plan they want to implement. I think it's great that they have a plan, but they haven't no young people on their board. They have no youth representation, so how do they know how to fix the issues going on with the youth? Young people WANT to be involved. It's the grown people who seem to want to count us out. I'm one of few black teenage entrepreneurs in the entire city doing what I'm doing. I'm a young person, so I talk to young people EVERYDAY. I know so many of their struggles. I've gone to schools to advocate for children when I had nothing to do with the situation. I'd like to schedule a meeting with the city council. I'd like for the council to take a serious look at my plan. I am the owner of my own nonprofit organization called "Building Bosses". Please give me a moment to talk to you about it.
