Bronx teens and politicians work on issues of violence
Some Bronx teens, part of the Bronx Youth Council, participated in an educational conference Saturday that addressed issues regarding gangs and suicide.
Participating teens met with politicians to create solutions to problems such as youth violence. Leaders and youth council members also discussed issues ranging from teen pregnancy to abusive relationships. In response to the youth council?s request for safe havens, the Children?s Aid Society is building a teen center on Southern Boulevard.
The conference was held at Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School.
