As you know to win the war on crime, is a process and it’s going to take everyone to work together, share information and resources. Violent Flash Mob has torn the city apart. Right now there is a division in Milwaukee County between youth, and adults. Bridging the Gap Youth Summit is designed for youth, and adults to start communicating and work on a solution for the violence that is crippling our communities.
Diverse group of leaders and youth will meet to develop strategies to break the “code of silence” and reduce the acceptance of youth violence that pervade the youth culture. This event provides a forum for youth to express their views on the causes of and solutions for violence.
