Our first town hall will focus on the new youth detention center that is currently being designed and built for Shelby County.
The evening will include a question and answer session with several local elected officials, community stakeholders, and community experts. The goal of this event is to create transparency around the building process and create space for those in the community who are directly impacted to ask questions of our community leaders. We will also hear from youth who are working to create change around this issue in Memphis!
We kindly ask that you register for the event here, and then the zoom event link will be emailed to you.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me directly at Mahalburr@gmail.com. Please feel free to share this invite with anyone else that you think might be interested in attending.
We hope that you will be able to join us for a great conversation about youth detention in Shelby County as we also explore alternatives to these types of facilities!
