The Youth Safety Workshop is a community event at which youth engage in meaningful conversations about their rights and responsibilities, empowering them to become the future leaders of our community. The sessions are in small working groups with teams of African-American police officers, lawyers, judges, law students, graduate students, and fraternity and sorority members.
