Community Action on Youth Issues

FROM: Stanley Miller

On Saturday, September 15, 2007, from 9 to 11 AM, the Cleveland NAACP, 100 Black Men, BUILD, Black on Black Crime, Peace in the Hood, The Black Shield Police Association, The Black Psychologist Association, Pastor in Mission, and many other groups are asking organizations to join the dialogue to address minority youth issues in our community, at Tri C Metro.

We are asking any organization who is involved in minority youth tutoring, mentoring or other youth focused programs to join us to understand the scope of the issues facing our community and understand better what programs are in place, and begin a dialogue on opportunities to work more effectively together.

The ABC’s of the meeting will be to:

Agree on the need, and what’s being done today

Buy-in to the effort

Commit to recruit others in the effort

Dr. Eugene Sanders the CMSD, CEO will join the session to share his vision and how we can all best make a difference together. With all respect, the session is not designed for debate or speeches. All we ask that egos be checked at the door, and a folks bring a sincere effort to make is difference.

Please RSVP to the Cleveland NAACP at 216-231-6260 or by responding to this email.
