A Better Chicago and Mikva Challenge are joining forces to host a State of Chicago Youth virtual town hall event. In these times of recovery, reform and reimagining, the voices of our young people are more valuable than ever. Join us to be the first to hear what local youth leaders participating in Mikva Challenge’s Citywide and Neighborhood Youth Councils have to say about our path forward. Attendees will be encouraged to ask questions and provide resources to help push the youth’s recommendations forward during the upcoming school year.
Throughout the summer, Mikva Challenge youth policymakers have been identifying the most pressing issues and inequities currently affecting Chicago youth. At this first-ever town hall event, they will present their policy recommendations and engage us all in identifying ways we can take action to turn their vision for our city into a reality.
Recommendations will focus on five major issue areas: health, education, juvenile justice, housing, and safety/policing.
This event is free, however we require attendees to register in advance. Please RSVP by end of day, August 17.RSVP
