After The March: A youth led townhall in Miami Dade addressing neighborhood gun violence.

Aliyah says there are clear neighborhood divides when it comes to gun violence. The people in Miami Beach can walk to Publix at 3 a.m. @WLRN #gunviolence
One teen says he contemplates his own mortality after his step brother was shot. He says "that's trauma."
Janvier one of the teens addresses several of the police officers in the audience. He tells them their presence in his community does not make him feel safe because of police brutality and police violence in black communities.
Miami Dade assistant police director says the Miami-Dade community needs to engage youth more on issues around neighborhood gun violence. #neveragain
An elementary school student when asked when was the last time she felt safe in her neighborhood said, "Never because we lose people everyday." #gunviolence
This town hall was born out of a meeting called by teens who live in Miami-Dade neighborhoods impacted by regular gun violence. They plan to host a series of discussions on the topic. The next town hall will be led by parents and educators. wlrn.org/post/miami-dad…
