ATTENTION: PARENTS, TEACHERS, PASTORS, COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS & YOUTH LEADERS
Brooklyn NY: Join Brooklyn Independent Media for a live broadcast, town hall-style discussion. We seek to reshape the dialogue around youth and violence. From the Baltimore uprising to viral youth beating videos, the media has once again turned its gaze on youth, asking are they out of control “thugs,” “brutes,” or “animals”? BRIC is looking beyond the violence gone viral and trying to connect with the real issues facing urban youth.
What role is media playing in both sensationalizing and desensitizing violence? What are the circumstances today that lead to violent expressions of anger? How are our institutions failing young people? And Most importantly, how can these young voices help us understand the call to action?
