Teen Empowerment’s Youth Jobs & Justice March/SpeakOut

When: Thu., June 12, 3:30-6 p.m. 2014

March begins at St. Monica’s Church, 831 Genesee St. and ends with SpeakOut at Willie Lightfoot’s Barbershop, 647 Jefferson Ave. In a neighborhood where unemployed young people hang out on corners while others struggle to find reliable transportation to retail, fast food, and call center jobs in the suburbs, Teen Empowerment (TE) youth organizers (YOs) will lead a march to bring attention to the impact that the lack of employment opportunities for youth has on their community.
