This panel will delve into how cities and school districts can invest in programs and services to address the needs of local youth of color. How can cities move funding to create and reimagine youth programs? How can we address the wellness and mental health of young people in our community?  Join us to hear from local youth leaders and organizers about how we can incorporate youth in the decision-making process and advance transformational change for the next generation.
